A KAWS X CAMPANA BROTHERS BFF CHAIR.Frustration is often the mother of invention. That was the case with São Paulo design duo Humberto and Fernando Campana, who found themselves tired of traditional upholstery back in 2002. Then a chance encounter sparked an idea: “Someone on the street was selling stuffed animals, carrying them all in his hands—teddy bears, lions, crocodiles,” says Humberto. “Fernando and I looked at each other and said, ‘This is the chair.’”They headed to a nearby market and bought a zoo’s worth of plush toys. At the studio, they…

Sounds peachy, if you ask us. toryburch.com ■…
