ABOUT THE ARTIST
Humberto & Fernando Campana have been solidly building their design career through innovation by incorporating the idea of transformation and reinvention. Working in close partnership with Brazilian communities, a strong social mission permeates the Campana Brothers’ ethos. Employing local factories and industries to produce their work provides close connections to the culture and heritage of Brazil. Giving preciousness to banal, day-to-day or common materials carries not only the creativity of the designs, but also distinctly Brazilian characteristics – the colours, the mixtures of materials, the creative chaos, and the triumph of the simple solutions. Based in Sao Paulo, Estudio Campana is constantly investigating new possibilities in furniture making, forming bridges and dialogues where the exchange of information is also a source of inspiration.
