Continuing its programme of exhibitions focussing on contemporary designers, from 13 September 2012 to 24 February 2013, the Arts Décoratifs’ Contemporary Gallery is giving carte blanche to Fernando and Humberto Campana, the Brazilian designers famous for their original creations and recycling of objects. Their eclectic, iconoclastic and exuberant creations are steeped in the vibrant atmosphere of their home country. Revealed by the Italian design publishers Edra, Fontana Arte and Alessi and by their collaborations with Maison Bernardaud and Lacoste, in only a few years they have become the leading ambassadors of Brazilian design.

The exhibition includes 11 prototypes for the Campana brothers’ latest creations.
