The Brazilians Fernando and Humberto Campana are the most significant designers in present-day Latin America. In addition to designs for international manufacturers of furniture, lighting and home accessories, the majority of creations coming out of their Sao Paulo studio consist of custom-made one-off objects for the home characterized by recycling of found materials, idiosyncratic combinations and a surrealistic impression. The retrospective on the 20-year collaboration between the two brothers emphasizes the artistic working method and explains how the works take shape – from the first sculptures up to the interdisciplinary works of today – based on prototypes, experiments and one-off pieces.
