Created in 1984 in Sao Paulo by Fernando (1961) and Humberto (1953), studio Campana is recognized for its furniture design and intriguing pieces. Currently, the studio operates in the areas of architecture, landscaping, scenography, fashion as well as special projects and commissions.

The Sao Paulo-based studio celebrates its 35th anniversary acknowledged internationally as a pioneer of disruptive design, which led them to create a ground-breaking language in their field. 

Proudly rooted in Brazilian culture and traditions, their work carries universal values at its core, such as freedom and human dignity, through the search of our identity from life experiences.

Their creative process raises everyday materials to nobility, bringing not only creativity to design but also Brazilian characteristics - the colors, the mixtures, the creative chaos - the triumph of simple solutions, in an artistic and poetic way.

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

In 2009, the Campana Brothers founded Instituto Campana, in order to preserve their ever-growing collection for future generations and to promote design as a tool for transformation through social and educational programs.
