“Grinza” armchair, design Fernando and Humberto Campana

The Campana brothers, in their years with Edra, have always considered the material with which each piece is realized as a value unto itself.

From the wooden slats of the Favela chair, to the long strands of raffia of the Cabana container, to the curved stainless steel of the Corallo chair or the 120 meters of velvet tubing of the Boa sofa. And now there’s Grinza, which has a steel tube frame and polyurethane padding, with great expanses of leather or eco-fur draped softly over the structure.
