Modem Accessories Spring-Summer 2011
Cover by Fernando & Humberto Campana
This season for the cover we have given “carte blanche” to Fernando and Humberto Campana, Designers and Art Directors.
“We are the borderline, between kitsch and regionalism”, says F. and H. Campana. Considered unconventional and atypical, the masters of Brazilian design Fernando and Humberto Campana have been collecting and recycling for a decade ropes, wood boards, bamboo wires, rag dolls and hose pipes... Starting with exuberant assemblies, thier objects break the codes of minimal or functional design.
They enhance craftsmanship and denounce the waste caused by industrialization and globalization. They have become spokesmen of emerging countries by supporting their cultural and handcraft resources.
Edited by Edra, Alessi, Christofle, who have signed numerous installation across the world. Acclaimed by the most renowned museums, the Campana brothers' work has been edited in a catalog in 2010.
