Fernando and Humberto Campana are two Brazilian whose innovative ideas are increasingly spoken. Inspired and demanding, transcended the boundaries of the category and are already in museums around the world.
Vermelha Chair (second image) was awarded one of the first objects of the brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana. They recognize that the cabinet opened the way to stardom design, especially as to the MOMA in New York included it in one of their catalogs.
This Brazilian duo has achieved a style found inspiration in such disparate topics as the Amazon, the street vendors, the reuse of objects and to cinema and the arts.
The results do not often go unnoticed: chairs made with panda teddy bears or dolls with articulated. Something more conventional (at least considering their usual line of work) is the anemone chair, that hits but from another aesthetic.
Asked about his way of thinking and working objects, Fernando believes that "good design should be an integral part of society," and believes that there remain only in functionality. "Design should also advance the dreams," says .
Humberto, for its part, argues that theirs is not something merely exotic. In any case, the synthesized faces a vast country like Brazil, "a country may be poor, rich, friendly, violent."
In addition to populating the pages of major publications in the industry, the designs of the Campana brothers are already part of the Vitra Museum (Germany), MOMA (New York), the Museum of Decorative Arts in Montreal and the Museum of Modern Art of São Paulo.
