TransPlastic Furniture by Fernando & Humberto Campana

The TransPlastic series tells a fictional story: in a world made of plastic and synthetic matter, a fertile ground is laid for transgenic creations. Natural fibres recover the plastic as in an immunological response: nature grows from the plastic and overpowers it.

Regular chairs, multiple-seating chairs, lamps, illuminated meteors, clouds and islands have been created by taking advantage of the elasticity of natural fibre. Taking as a starting point plastic chairs, water containers and rudimentary wood stools, natural fibre extensions were added, altering the original form. The pieces subsequently took on a geographic dimension through organic shapes, adding value and comfort to the original base material.

All the pieces are handcrafted with a very typical Brazilian fibre, Apu. The extraction of this fibre helps preserve and control the biodiversity of the forests as Apu suffocates and kills the trees from which they grow. These fibres are removed manually, without any tools or processes that may harm the trees.

The fibre is an analogy for this series of work; the wicker begins to grow from the plastic, suffocating and drawing nourishment from it, reinforcing the original theses of the fictional story Fernando and Humberto have chosen to tell.

In the past, all the Brazilian terraces and semi-outdoor cafes were furnished with wicker pieces. Over time, these were gradually substituted for the more practical and long-lasting plastic ones. The Campana Brothers have chosen to play with this idea and bring back the old tradition of wicker furniture in a hybrid, playful manner.

    kind of a bummer it seems all the chairs have to be facing away from each other- or else the organic form gets a little hairy-

  • This is all good, but in the end only you can make decisions
    about your kitchen renovation. The Masterbuilt designers added a drain clip to the fry
    basket which permits you to hang the basket on the side of the fryer as
    the turkey drains and cools. If the cost estimates are too low, the
    project will go over budget – sometimes significantly
    so.

  • You can try several things to help speed up the
    process and maybe even lighten the tan up a little bit. In order to get a rich and
    spotless tan while keeping your skin smooth and glowing, it is
    necessary to use the best quality tanning products.

    Cheaper versions are less likely to coat evenly or have colors that do
    not blend well with a variety of skin tones.

  • Will the doctor performing blind dissection be able to adequately account for this variability in the average
    patient and will he risk operating on an unwary patient in whom these differences might be profound.
    Eventually this can cause hair thinning or patches of bald spots.
    Remember, the foaming action of regular shampoos and detergents
    is for looks only.

  • Fortunately for women, the lower back ages very well, so they
    should have no problems over the years with their tattoo.
    – Oxybenzone – carcinogen and contributor to vascular disease, may affect the brain and nervous system in animals.

    Back to your skin check, the first time you do the check be sure to take as many pictures as possible to show
    what your skin looks like.

    Overall, Amazon is a wonderful place for the best tanning creams at
    an extremely discounted rate to help you save some serious cash and get the products you really
    want. If you don’t mind your tan being darker than you can treat
    the rest of your tan instead of the blotches and streaks.
    Suede is less durable than other varieties of Buffalo Leather and
    is cheaper because many pieces of suede can be split from a single piece of the hide.
