In 1983, the two brothers teamed up to make furniture made of ordinary materials including scrap and waste products such as cardboard, rope, cloth and wood scraps, plastic tubes and aluminum wire. From 1997, some of the Campana Brothers products including the Vermelha chair began to be produced and sold in Italy.
“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 Brazilian interior designers.
In 1998 the Campana Brothers became the first Brazilian artists to exhibit their work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, along with German lighting designer Ingo Maurer. In 2002, the renowned interior designers started crafting their own line of limited editions and unique pieces handmade at the studio in Sao Paulo.
Throughout the years, the Campana Brothers have faced some obstacles in their professional path, but there was one specific moment that marked the Brazilian interior designers.
“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.”
Besides this incredible episode, Fernando Campana also highlighted as an important point of his career the hospitality project of the New Hotel in Athens, Greece, and the interior design project of the Café Campana for Musée D’Orsay. It was Campana Brothers‘ first architectural project, while the Café Campana project, 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”.
“To deal with people and learn about their habits, to understand what makes them tick, and to take part in their lives by proposing new ways of experiencing life.” The Campana Brothers have that feeling of mission accomplished when they know that they fulfilled the clients’ needs and expectations right in the original idea.
Every bespoke product of the Campana Brothers‘ inspiring collection is designed by them. Some of their bespoke furniture designs are the result of successful partnerships between the Brazilian interior designers and other artists.
