LabelThis chair is made from thick, soft cord (like that typically used in hot-air balloons) piled spaghetti-like on a tubular metal frame. The Campanas use common materials-even things that might be considered trash-in their furniture; they have also designed chairs made of garden hose and stuffed animals.
