DESIGNTALKS 08 | MEET THE CAMPANA BROTHERS AT SPD ON JULY 9TH

Save the date: on Wednesday July 9th at 18.30 SPD will host a conference by Fernando and Humberto Campana illustrating their peculiar approach to design between mass production, art and craftmanship.

On Wednesday, July 9th at 18.30, the Brazilian brothers Fernando and Humberto Campana will take centerstage at SPD during the next DesignTalks lecture. The conference, open to the general public, is part of the Summer School programme promoted by SPD with the participation of leading names at international level: the Campanas, Ross Lovegrove, Matalì Crasset, Martì Guixé. Guests will be introduced by Cristina Morozzi, curator of both the DeepDesign Summer School.

Over the past 25 years, Fernando and Humberto Campana have rooted their work in the research for an innovative and original use of materials pursuing new aesthetics solutions. Challenging the common sense, their pieces are famous for giving shape to dreams. They are often inspired by everyday commodities, waste material and industrial goods they reprocess thus providing second-generation objects with aesthetical dignity. Products can be made from recovered items or else originated by the transfer of the commonest consumer goods out of their peculiar context and function.
