Minima is pleased to announce the acquisition of Sushi Chair by Campana Brothers for the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
An enlarged figurative aesthetic does not have to be grounded only in forms found in nature; it can also be borrowed from disciplines such as the culinary arts and medicine. An example of the former is Fernando and Humberto Campana’s Sushi Chair, produced by Edra.
The chair is mostly handcrafted and made in a manner that is similar to the assembly of a sushi roll. The fabric is rolled, mechanically sewn together, and cut, before the entire unit is flipped to its upright position. The oversize Sushi Chair is emblematic of the Campana brothers’ anti-intellectual approach and their interest in handcrafted techniques that yield aesthetically unique, inventive designs.
