The event most designers await twice a year is almost here. Maison & Objet, one of the world’s most highly anticipated design & trade exhibitions will take place on September 7-11 2012 at Parc des Expositions de Paris Nord Villepinte, France. And this year the Maison & Objet 2012 chosen designers are: Fernando & Humberto Campana.
“The Campana brothers have eco-design in their veins. Born 250km from São Paulo in a region with abundant natural resources, from their childhood they were immersed in a culture of craftsmanship and now offer «alternative», iconoclastic, joyful design, which opens new vistas for everyday life. The path they have taken from the day Humberto created a little studio for handmade objects 30 years ago through the twentieth anniversary of the Estudio Campana, celebrated in 2009 at the Vitra Design Museum in Germany, is a testament to a shared spirit of passion and everlasting brotherhood.”
