“Named after a traditional Brazilian confection, the Campana brothers’ Bomboca Sofa for the Louis Vuitton Objets Nomades collection is a treat for the eye.
Its gracefully curved shell lined with soft calfskin holds eight plush cushions that fit together like a puzzle.
As beautiful as an abstract sculpture, as comfortable as a cloud…”
Fernando and Humberto Campana have been creating modern classics since 1984. Their creativity is based upon looking beyond the obvious to capture the beauty in the everyday. With a constantly striking use of colour and a heartfelt dedication to craftsmanship, the brothers make the ordinary extraordinary and bring out the beautiful in the simple.
Since 2002, Estudio Campana, their São Paulo based company, has been producing its own product line, as well as one-of f handmade pieces. Celebrating in 2019 its 35 years of work, their pieces can be seen in the permanent collections of cultural institutions around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Centre Pompidou, Paris; the Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein; and the Museu de Arte Moderna, São Paulo. They were also named Designers of the Year at Design Miami in 2008, at Maison & Objet Paris in 2012, and were given a special award at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in September 2012.
