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.
