Humberto and Fernando Campana founded Campana Brothers – a Brazilian Design Studio thay has been creating several amazing design projects throughout the years. “I love the challenge of looking for new ideas, discovering new ways of working with materials, collaborating with different people and imagining ‘new landscapes’. I love being part of their daily lives and discover ways of improving it, whether it’s in a rural or urban setting through an object, architecture or social projects“, explained the interior designers.
A design furniturecompany that transform ordinary materials into amazing furniture pieces such as cardboard, rope, cloth and wood scraps, plastic tubes and aluminum wire. The design studio already accomplished several goals such as selling their furniture piecesto Italy and they were the first Brazilian artists to exhibit their work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, along with German lighting designer Ingo Maurer.
“I have to stay it was transitioning from one-of-a-kind, limited edition pieces to mass production. We overcame it thanks to people like Massimo Morozzi, art director at Edra at the time, who was keen to spread our design philosophy applying their industrial expertise and invited us to work together. That’s how Vermelha was put into production in 1998, five years after it was created in our studio. We initially thought it would be a limited edition but as it turned out, it is still being produced today and it’s one of our most recognized pieces.”, claims the brothers.
Fernando believes that one of his most important points of his career was when they had to create a hospitality project of the New Hotel in Athen, Greece. Fernando enhances that he “was very grateful for being trusted by them with a carte blanche to create a space from our vision to exist in a place that is a masterpiece in itself”.
The interior designers consider that the future of design relies on sustainable solutions and ancient craftsmanship techniques: “That means looking at human resources with care making their staff part of the process and preserving their self-esteem. We need to acknowledge their importance in the whole process”.
