Friends Of: Campana Brothers' DesignsJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 16 Oct 2012
As we continue our series of featuring the Friends Of Brazilian great, Vik Muniz, today we look at the award-winning design team of brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana. Campana Designs have long been known for their unique combination of craft-meets-contemporary, recycled-meets-high design furniture. The Campanas have garnered massive critical attention for their innovative furniture made from everyday materials and waste products like cardboard, fabric scraps, rope, aluminum wire, and plastic tubes. The Campanas solo show at New York's MOMA distinguished the brothers as the first Brazilian artists exhibited in the museum. Their work is in permanent collections of major art and design museums worldwide. In 2001, the designers were honored with the prestigious Design Award at the Museu da Casa Brasileira (Brazilian House Museum), and in 2008, Design Miami awarded the Campana Brothers with the Designer of the Year prize.
