  • Catalogue Essay

    Taking their inspiration from everyday scenarios and using unexpected combinations of found materials – such as rubber hose, tissue paper, string or furry toys – Fernando and Humberto Campana transform modest materials into objects that celebrate the discarded and mundane and are instilled with the spirit of contemporary Brazil that they describe as “zest for life.” The prototype of this design is alternatively named “California Rolls” chair.
