Campana Brothers, Pirarucu Armchair (Pink) $46,000>
Carpenters Workshop Gallery

The Campana Brothers' Pirarucu Armchair is upholstered with discarded skin from the eponymous fish, which is sustainably harvested from the Brazilian Amazonian rivers. One of the largest freshwater fish in the world, the Pirarucu’s tanned pelts is juxtaposed against an elegant, sustainably-sourced bamboo frame, and polished cast bronze feet. The Brazilian-duo’s Armchair is at once culturally relevant as well as fanciful, referencing mermaid mythology. The Pirarucu is a sculptural experimentation, and their foray into the artistic realm of personal expression and societal commentary. Adopting an environmental ethos, the brothers utilise existing everyday materials, reinventing them in order to achieve simple solutions that do not compromise on their principles of aesthetic or design.
