Well known for their love of the natural and the artisan, Brazilian designers, and brothers, Fernando and Humberto Campana have created a collection of leather and wicker furniture pieces for São Paulo gallery Firma Casa.
The Campana brothers gained international attention 20 years ago when the late Italian designer and art director Massimo Morozzi singled out their work and brought it into the furniture collection of Edra where they still work today.
As well as their body of work for the Edra group, they regularly collaborate with galleries and produce one-off private commissions. This new range by the brothers launched at Design Miami this month and is inspired by the heritage of Brazil – this time the clothing associated with the late 19th century Cangaço movement of nomadic bandits.
Not a design company that follows the status quo, more space talks with Edra’s Niccolò Mazzei who grew up in the family business amongst the designers and the history of craftsmanship and innovation in Tuscany, and where knowledge runs deep and curiosity begins each new collection.
When Fernando and Humberto Campana began work on the New Hotel project in Athens 10 years ago, little did they know just how important the project would be, not only for their own practice, but also for the local artisans and architects who joined in on the adventure.
