Favela Tree (2004) by Fernando and Humberto Campana, estimated at $10,000–$15,000, up for bid on Paddle8 as part of Murray Moss' auction
Favela Tree (2004) by Fernando and Humberto Campana, estimated at $10,000–$15,000. Inspired by the “Favela” chair designed by the Campana Brothers in 2002, this unique sculpture was commissioned by Murray Moss and handmade in the Campana studio in 2004. Constructed from various pieces of wood randomly joined together, it references favelas, the ad-hoc shelters built of scraps of wood, bricks, and stones on the fringes of Brazilian cities
The New York design impresario, consultant, and pioneering eye of the '90s and early aughts auctions off items from his former gallery and personal collection with Paddle8.
