Many of the works by Campana selected for this exhibition are humorous variations on the modernist chair. In this series of three chairs named Azul (blue), Vermelha (red), and Verde (green), Fernando and Humberto Campana transform a standard metal chair by patiently and amorously lacing colorful cotton rope around and through its structure.
