Fernando and Humberto Campana

Since 1983 the Brazilian brothers Fernando (1961) and Humberto (1953) Campana have been solidly building their career in the field of artistic design, achieving both national and international recognition. Their work incorporates the idea of transformation and reinvention. Giving preciousness to poor, day-to-day or common materials carries not only the creativity in their design but also very Brazilian characteristics – the colors, the mixtures, the creative chaos, the triumph of simple solutions. Based in Sao Paulo, Estudio Campana is constantly investigating new possibilities in furniture making. From 1997 they worked with Edra for which they have designed some of their most successful furniture and with firms such as Alessi, Swarovski, Venini and Vitra. They designed accessories and clothing collections for Melissa, Lacoste and Louis Vuitton. Their work is displayed in some of the world’s most important museums, among others MoMA in New York, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, the Centre Georges Pompidou and the Musée des Art Décoratifs in Paris.
