Cork with character
by Anna Moldenhauer | 10/18/2018
With "Sobreiro", the Campana brothers have created a furniture collection made of natural materials.
Composed of four irregularly shaped, independent elements, three polygons and a quadrilateral, on moulded polypropylene and rubber feet.
The elements can be placed together along the various sides to obtain myriad patterns with modularity, governed b
y the laws of plane geometry, multiplied exponentially. The shapes, without frame and any rigid support, are modelled by moulding a mixture, protected by an international patent, of "Gellifoam" and other foams, some of which are commonly used in
aerospace applications, to ensure a special, almost sensual, softness. The range also includes two flexible backs, in different sizes, which can be positioned as required and joined together by means of two disks of special heat-formed rubber which can e
asily be removed for washing. The polyurethane shapes, pliant thanks to the extra softness of the mixture, are lined with a special stretch fabric that enables the shape to spring back. The covers, tight-fitting like a t-shirt, are fitted over the items a
nd fastened, to adapt to the ergonomic bending of the foam and?Gellifoam? mixture, by seams along the vertical sides only of the various elements.
Like a proper suit, the upholstery has been made up in a range of fabrics designed by Monica Mazzei and
produced exclusively for Edra.
