TransPlastic by Campana Brothers
The Campana's have simultaneously used both aspects of natural and man made and combined them in one expressive piece comparing and representing two sides of design. The classic design of the thatched outdoor chair combined with a new age classic. The plastic has been added to 'suffocate' the natural underlying material representing how this plastic suffocates the Brazilian rainforest. Wicker furniture has a traditional and authentic appearance and I think the brothers by combining the two show strongly that function and durability should not be put above design style.
