Playing with sculpture

Fernando and Humberto Campana’s project Hybridism is informed by details, moods and emotions and marks a point of departure for Estudio Campana as its most sculptural body of work to date.

The project derived from the Campana’s daily lives, such as Humberto’s early morning runs throughout São Paulo’s parks, as well as the idea of nature weaving through urban fabric and our own imagination. The brothers meld the personal with the formal and assemble ideas, materials, methods of making, shapes and texture.

Humberto Campana explains: “We are playing much more with sculpture than with functionality. We manifest a dialogue between designer, artist and sculptor. Fernando and I try to jump into the assemblage process unconsciously, allowing us a freedom and immediacy that goes beyond our practice to date.”

This project is an evolutionary culmination of the famed São Paulo studio practice of the past decade. The studio has experienced a multidisciplinary explosion in research of materials, means of production, collaborations with artisans within regions of Brazil and craftsmen across the world. At a time of cultural and political upheaval in Brazil, the studio continues to lead the cutting-edge of design and collaboration with local and historical centres of craftsmanship in South America.
