Brothers Where Art Thou?
To say that the Campana Brothers put a little Camp into high design is somewhat of an understatement. But don't let their quirky and irreverent creations fool you. Key figures in the "design art" movement, Humberto and Fernando Campana's work is highly sought after by collectors around the world and auctioned for hundreds of thousands of dollars. Inspired and distilled from Brazil's vibrant and colorful culture, this talented duo have consistently produced "imperfect" designs that challenge the modernist hierarchy of form and function and the relationship of art and utility. We've always been huge fans of their work and were excited to get our hands on their new book Complete Works (So Far). Available where fine books are sold, this colorful tome is practically a work of art in itself. The stitched hardcover is available in three colors and features eight chapters full of rich vibrant photograpy documenting the brother's early years through some of their most recent items of furniture. We recommend you do yourself a favor and invest in this highly anticipated monograph for a good dose of inspiration and a little shot of whimsy. Something we're all in need of every now and then-especially in the design industry!
