campana brothers’ aquário collection for bd barcelona at salone del mobile

 

 

 

the campana brothers‘ ‘aquário’ cabinet and table for bd barcelona design, are characterised by coloured glass that creates numerous bubble shaped windows along their surfaces. the cabinet which is made of ash wood or stained pine, draws upon an aquarium theme creating a playful and experimental tone. the internal shelves are also made of glass to conserve the material’s transparency allowing light to pass through.

although the objects may be static, the use of the fluorescent shapes create a sense of movement and transformation. the campana brothers the furniture plays with this idea different weights seen through the use of the light and transparent glass in juxtaposition to the solid wood. the contrast between different elements and materials is a common trait associated with the designers, who state ‘we love creating hybrids using distinct materials, one warm and the other cold. this has become part of our language when designing.’ the pieces express a spirited yet focused approach towards furniture design which reflects the tongue-in-cheek nature of the campana brothers.

 

the aquário collection is the campana brothers’ first project for BD barcelona, and is on show at salone del mobile 2016.
