Pirarucu Flower Vase
◄ Overview

Estudio Campana

Pirarucu Flower Vase

For three decades, Humberto and Fernando Campana have been established as the most significant designers in their native Brazil. They draw deeply on their homeland’s symbolism, material expertise, and history while also exploring the forms of global mass media. Their objects are conceived from the ‘bottom up,’ using low-value production methods and materials, with inspiration taken from the street rather than canonical design history. This vase relates to an important body of furniture using the skin of the pirarucu, one of the world’s largest freshwater fish, which live in the waters of the Amazonian basin. The Campanas worked with local sustainable fisheries and artisans to find a purpose for the impressive animal’s skin, typically a waste product. The vase captures the compelling grid-scaled texture of the fishskin in bronze.
