lebanese native camille kachani develops an inventive collection of furniture relating to nature’s transformation process. his pieces are hybrid objects that investigate the original and primitive conditions of the natural elements, by using everyday materials and objects and giving them new interpretations, resizing their scales and original functions. in doing so, kachani sprouts wooden limbs and leaves on everyday household items, such as chairs, shelves, shovels, rakes and books, in an attempt to bring items back to their original roots.

kachani‘s intent is to make the designs practically unusable as an ode to nature’s organic growth. additionally, the artist reflects on the question of ‘public versus private’ sphere: ‘does nature belong to us, or do we belong to nature?’. the notion of duality is expressed through his unique furniture collection that can be found in sao paulo’s zipper galeria.
