Estudio Campana

We learn from the materials; they tell us what forms they should take. ”

          Co-founded in 1984 by brothers Fernando (1961-2022) and Humberto (1953) Campana, the Campana studio has achieved international recognition for its ground-breaking design. The studio celebrated its 35th anniversary in 2019, followed by “Campana Brothers: 35 Revolutions”, a major retrospective exhibition at the Museu de Arte Moderna in Rio de Janeiro in 2020. 

          Deeply rooted in Brazilian culture and traditions but also carries universal values at its core, Campana studio creates their identity through life experiences. By incorporating the idea of transformation and reinvention, their creative process raises everyday materials to nobility.

          Based in São Paulo, Campana is constantly investigating new possibilities within the design field: from furniture making to architecture, landscaping, fashion, scenography, and more. Bridging disciplines and encouraging the exchange of expertise among communities and artists are vital sources of inspiration, fresh repertoire, and free-thinking. Working with multiple brands and industries allows them to combine the best of craftsmanship, sustainable production practices and state-of-the-art technologies.

          Campana pieces are part of permanent collections of renowned cultural institutions such as Centre Pompidou, Paris; Musée Des Arts Décoratifs, Paris; the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; Museum of Modern Art, New York; San Francisco Museum of Modern Art; Museum of Modern Art of Sao Paulo; and Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein.

          As one of the world’s most influential and iconic designers, the Campana Brothers founded Instituto Campana in 2009 to preserve their ever-growing collection for future generations and to promote design as a tool for social transformation through cultural and educational programs.
