AQUARIO Cabinet by Campana Brothers at Salone Del Mobile 2016
This is one of the most exciting weeks in the interior design industry with Salone del Mobile taking place in Milan. Today, Buffets and Cabinets Blog brings you a special suggestion – the newest AQUARIO Cabinet by Campana Brothers to be released during Salone del Mobile.
Brazilian duo have used coloured glass to fill blob-shaped gaps in this wooden cabinet for Spanish brand BD Barcelona Design.
“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.”
“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.”
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.
Transparent shelves are installed behind the four square cabinet doors to help allow light through. Four angled wooden legs raise the main horizontal volume off the floor. Two different colour versions will be available.
BD Barcelona Design will present the Aquário cabinet, along with new pieces by Jaime Hayón, Oscar Tusquets, Färg & Blanche and more, at this year’s Salone del Mobilefurniture fair in Milan.
