camp design gallery collaborates with a select group of designers on a series of limited edition pieces that are made using classic mediums like carrara marble and clay, that have been manipulated through innovative manufacturing techniques. they commissioned veronica todisco to envision a contemporary piece of furniture — taking an iconic and familiar everyday object, and affirming its existence through an unconventional use of material. the result is ‘adaptations’: a folding deckchair that is characterized by a carrara marble structure, supported by a brass metal frame.

‘adaptations’ expresses the solidity of well-known objects, rendered through traditional italian craftsmanship, bringing forth a sophisticated work of art. it projects an unpredictable interaction between human will and natural properties, demystifying preconceptions, unravelling the boundaries of imagination, and bringing forth the ephemeral.

 

the ‘adaptations’ folding deckchair, along with other camp design gallery works are on show at design days dubai 2016.
