Despite their quite evident Italian origins, the Campana brothers are actually Brazialian through and through, and they are without doubt to be included amongst the most interesting phenomena of recent young international design.

Their work is hallmarked by < use of materials in the raw state and by experimentation with poor and recycled matter. Their hybrid, often primitive forms seek to express the contradictions of their urban chaos, drawing on the vitality of indigenous expressions for endowing the products with an authentic nature, bound to the temperament of local folk >> (C. Morozzi). "Blow up", the family of objects that we are presenting today marks the start of a collaboration that I hope will be long and fruitful. It resounds with echoes of the game called "Shanghai" and was created with the idea of assembling hypothetical offcuts of steel wire, welding them together to form various types of containers.
