The Brazilian design duo Fernando and Humberto Campana are known for their colourful, wilful, and experimental furniture influenced by traditional handicrafts. They collaborate with different groups and use everyday material such as rope, cardboard, stuffed toy animals, bamboo, blankets, and plastic tubes.

 

For Bildmuseet Campanas are creating a new site-specific room installation, Woods. It will be the Campanas first exhibition in Sweden and the starting point for a programme of workshops and lectures during the exhibition period.

 

Brothers Fernando Campana (b. 1961) and Humberto Campana (b. 1953) work in São Paulo, Brazil. They have worked with places like the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the furniture exhibition in Milan, and Beijing Design Week. Their furniture can be found in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the Centre Pompidou in Paris.
