During Design Miami 2018, the Campana brothers together with the American street artist KAWS presented a collection of seats with a pop flow.
What happens if KAWS, the most pop of the living artists, collaborates with the Campana brothers, the celeb couple in design experimentation? The result is dazzling, especially if Marc Benda, founding partner of Friedman Benda, one of the most interesting American design galleries on the contemporary and international scene, is in charge.
At Design Miami 2018 they have presented the irreverent and ultra-pop result of this new collaboration. Following the line of the Botolas collection, a series of seats covered with plush leather designed in 2016 by the founders of Estudio Campana (Fernando and Humberto Campana), the street-artist KAWS – born Brian Donnelly – decided to have one of his iconic characters reproduced in the form of a puppet.
