Campana’s brothers -Sustainable design

This week I’m in a Brazilian mood… and you are going to see why…

Last week I saw a documentary about this two Brazilian brothers , Fernando and Humberto Campana, one of them is a lawyer and the other en architect and both present us great designs with non-traditional and recycled materials. They design mainly sofas and chairs, all of them very smart made.

As they said in the interview, living in Brazil let them play with lot of colors and materials and techniques they saw with local artisans.

Here I’m going to show you some models, but don’t miss their site an example of quality.

Lately I’ve found myself very worried about all the trash we are making… and I have decided to keep all the boxes, bottles and pots..; so I realized that sometimes we can re use them to keep safe our crafty staff, but then.. the rest… is simply a lot!  That’s why I’m thinking about starting a new project just with recycled materials… I don’t have a clear idea of what to do yet, but I feel I need to do it.

So, here we go…

Sushi

Sushi

This is one of my favorites… full of colors and texture… made with lots of materials and I don’t know why I imagine must be really comfortable sitting down in one of them…

Favela

Favela

This is another of my favorites… it is made of rest of wood and they say is like people of the favelas in Sao Paulo use to make their houses…

Vermelha

Vermelha

It looks very sumptuous but is just rope!! I think this chair might fit in every space… a hotel, a bar, a house, I found it very versatile and fashion..

Banquete

Banquete

The most extravagant… well, I was impressed by the imagination of the authors… but I cannot be sitting over these little creatures… 🙂

What do you think?

    Vi el trabajo de esta gente hace rato cuando estaba buscando inspiracion de fieltro. Tienen en el website de ellos un sillon hecho con circulos de colores que esta buenisimo. Yo quiero uno!
    Reciclar, indeed. Diariamente hacer lo imposible para no hacer mucha basura. Yo directamente casi no compro cosas que vengan con envoltorios de plastico, llevo mis propias bolsas al super, compro en mercados de frutas y verduras y cosas asi. se puede!

    Always I've liked geometry in all the senses: mathematical, philosophical and aesthetic. It has been my main source of inspiration together with the Golden Ratio. Even in the covers of my notebooks there is a rational analysis of composition on the basis of the covers' format with the proportion of size and position of the papers making the collage […]
