Synopsis

The comprehensive monograph on one of the most celebrated bodies of design in recent decades.



Inspired and distilled from Brazil's street and carnival cultures, Humberto and Fernando Campana have consistently produced gleefully "imperfect" designs that challenge the modernist hierarchy of form and function and the relationship of art and utility. Key figures in the "design art" movement, the Campanas' work has been highly sought after by collectors and auctioned for hundreds of thousands of dollars. The Brazilian-born brothers cite their country's unique culture as integral to each object, often using materials from Sao Paolo's favelas in their work as both inspiration and as functional parts. In their hands, coils of rope, stuffed alligators, and Bubble Wrap are transformed into shapes of unexpectedly graceful chairs, lounges, and other pieces of highly functional if improbable furniture. This element of playfulness has become a signature of their work, demonstrating an ability to imbue each piece with sophisticated humor and unpredictable form. A highly anticipated monograph, the first of their career, this book contains newly commissioned photography and detailed information on all of the Campanas' designs, including prototypes, rare one-offs, and limited and mass-production pieces. In addition, four illuminating essays by experts in the design field make this the book on the Campanas for years to come.

Humberto and Fernando Campanas' designs have been the subject of exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, and the Vitra Design Museum. Li Edelkoort is one of the world's most renowned trend forecasters. Stephan Hamel is an in-demand consultant to Italian design manufacturers. Cathy Lang Ho is the former founding editor-in-chef of the Architect's Newspaper and a design journalist. Deyan Sudjic is the Director of the Design Museum, London.
