Humberto. Brazil, 1953. Fernando. Brazil, 1961.
Camper and the Campana brothers have a lot in common: they both feel that rules were made to be broken, champion creative freedom, practise experimentation and believe in the virtue of simple solutions. Their partnership has produced eloquent spaces by combining humble materials in surprising new ways: creative chaos, blends, colours, transformation, provocation, action. The Camper stores designed by the Campana brothers contain a declaration of principles: it's time for an attitude adjustment.
About Campana Brothers
These siblings are Brazil's most widely acknowledged designers. Trained as a lawyer but a sculptor at heart, Humberto began to design objects using the humblest of materials, unwittingly creating the design concept that would later make him famous. In 1983 Fernando completed his degree in Architecture and joined his brother. The exhibition Desconfortáveis (Museu de Arte de São Paulo, 1989) catapulted them to international success. They have since worked for firms such as Fontana Arte, Vitra and Alessi. The brothers have received several prestigious distinctions, most notably the George Nelson Design Award and Designer of the Year 2008 at Design Miami. Today their work can be found at the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, the Musée des Arts Dé coratifs and the Vitra Design Museum.
