Campana's design process seldom begins with an intellectual concept, instead it is sparked by a subjective process of observation. Many of the works selected for this exhibition are variations on the modern chair, all achieved without preliminary studies and drawings. For example, in this work, Fernando and Humberto Campana have layered plastic bubble-wrap onto the steel frame in the guise of upholstery.
