Campana brothers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Campana Brothers (Humberto Campana, b. 1953 and Fernando Campana, b. 1961) are Brazilian designers.

In 1983, the two brothers teamed up to make furniture made of ordinary materials including scrap and waste products such as cardboard, rope, cloth and wood scraps, plastic tubes and aluminium wire.[1] From 1997, some of their products including the Vermelha chair began to be produced and sold in Italy.[1][2]

In 1998 the Campana Brothers became the first Brazilian artists to exhibit their work (3 pieces of their Celia line) at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, along with work from the German lighting designer Ingo Maurer.[1]

[Humberto] For me, the chair express homage to chaos. It's a portrait of Brazil a melting pot of culture, race, and something fragmented. [Fernando] The Vermelha chair was projected and prototyped in 1993. for a show in a gallery in San Pablo. And from 1993 until 1997, we just have made five chairs. It's an icon in our career, as a piece and also as a process which was a nice idea of picking up ropes and making upholstery but everybody said, "Oh, this is an art piece." "This is not going to be a design, never." When Massimo Morozzi, the art director of Edra, saw this chair, he phoned me in São Paulo and said "I want to produce the Vermelha chair." and then I said, "You're kidding me." "It's 450 meters of rope weaved in a very imprecise way." "How do you want me to translate it?" Then we talked, me and Humberto, and we made a videotape, step by step how to weave the chair. It was a very primitive process to translate, and they loved it. And now it's one of the best sellers of Edra. It's not anymore art. It's an art piece that was transformed into mass production.
