Aquário Cabinet< back to Storage
The Campana brothers chose the coloured glass to give the impression of a fish tank. "We were inspired by the idea of an aquarium to create this piece," said Fernando Campana. The cuboid Aquário buffet is built from either ash or pine wood, with irregularly shaped holes cut into its surfaces. These openings are sealed by sections of the glass, allowing views through the furniture piece. "We love to create hybrids using two different materials; a warm one and a cold one," said Humberto Campana. "It has become part of our design language." Transparent shelves are installed behind the four square cabinet doors to help allow light through. "I wanted to play with the idea of opposite weights too; the lightness of the glass and the massiveness of the wood," Humberto Campana added. "The immaterialness of the first one and the physicalness of the second one."
External panels and doors are in blue glass, veneered in pine stained in grey. Legs in pine stained in grey. Interior shelves in blue glass. Veneered in Oberflex. Steel tubular painted (dark grey) internal structure.
