Label:
Inspired by the coral reefs found off the coast of the brothers' native Brazil, the linear, random quality of the "Corallo" armchair realizes in three dimensions Humberto Campana's original freehand sketches made while he was a student in the late 1980s. Hand-formed and welded, and finished with a coral pink epoxy, each "Corallo" armchair is a unique creation.
