Estúdio Campana


Co-founded in 1984 by brothers Fernando (1961–2022) and Humberto (1953) Campana, Estúdio Campana has achieved international recognition as a pioneer of disruptive design, for its furniture and other intriguing pieces. Based in São Paulo, Campana is constantly investigating new possibilities in the field of design. Bridging disciplines – furniture making, architecture, landscaping, fashion, scenography – and encouraging the exchange of expertise among communities and artists are at the core of their practice.

Rooted in Brazilian culture, their work carries universal values at its core, such as freedom and human dignity, creating their identity through life experiences. By incorporating the idea of transformation and reinvention, their creative process raises everyday materials to nobility, where creative chaos leads to the triumph of simple solutions.

In 2002, Campana started handcrafting unique pieces currently represented by international galleries, including Friedman Benda, New York, Carpenters Workshop Gallery, London and San Francisco, Galleria Giustini/Stagetti, Rome, and Firma Casa, São Paulo. Their pieces are also part of collections such as Centre Pompidou and the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, MoMA, the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art and the Vitra Design Museum.

In 2022, Humberto Campana received the Honorary Doctorate Fellowship title from the University of the Arts London. In 2012, Fernando and Humberto Campana received the Colbert Committee Award in Paris; were honoured by Design Week in Beijing; received the Order of Cultural Merit in Brasilia, and were awarded the Order of Arts and Letters by the French Ministry of Culture, and elected Designers of the Year by Maison & Objet de Paris. In 2008, they received the Design/Miami Designer of the Year award.
