Eduardo García Campos – Butterfly Chair

This piece is inspired in nature, particularly in Mexican “Monarca” butterfly. This insect, in addition to its beauty and despite of the fragile appearance of its wings, is known for its strength and longevity. While other butterfly species have a life cycle of 24 days, this one can live up to nine months, 12 times more. The Monarca butterfly is capable of traveling more than 4000 kilometers (from Canada and the United States of America) to Oyameles states of Michoacan and Mexico (natural heritage of humanity).

 

Although initially it was intended for aluminum production, this piece can also be produced in different materials and processes, such as plastic, carbonfiber, bronze, etc.
