FERNANDO CAMPANA AND HUMBERTO CAMPANA
carpet, rubber, EVA, fabric and estela handcrafted into sushi rolls, brass
from an edition of 8 plus 4 artist's proofs
33½ x 71 x 19¾ in. (85 x 180.3 x 50.1 cm)
Overall in very good condition. This rare buffet from the “Sushi” series includes colorful “sushi” rolls and a bright brass structure when seen in person. The buffet is in fully functional condition and includes three sliding door panels. The piece has recently been professionally and sensitively cleaned to rehabilitate the fabric to the sushi rolls and the brightness of the brass structure. The brass presents with light surface scratches, scattered rust marks and occasional minute pinholes throughout consistent with age and gentle use. The fabric presents with minor surface irregularities which are inherent to production.
