Notes from the Archive: Humberto and Fernando Campana are brothers and design collaborators from Brazil. Their designs have been produced by top global manufacturers including Edra, Swarovski, Cappellini and Vitra. Examples of their designs are in numerous museums internationally including the Design Museum in London, MoMA in NYC and Centre Pompidou in Paris.
The Blow-up series for Alessi includes this basket, a centerpiece, a magazine holder, small table, citrus basket, umbrella stand, a mirror and a recent addition of a wall clock. In the program for this series, the Campana brothers deconstructed the form of each object with seemingly randomly placed stainless steel rods. The apparent chaos of the arrangement perfectly imposes just enough order to restrain their contents. Beautifully unexpected!
