Catalogue Note

"Our job is to test the limits of materials to see what they provide for aesthetics and comfort; we seek to see the world in more dense and less conventional ways," – said Humberto Campana

These pieces are not merely items of furniture, they are works of art. They are visions that show the variety that exists in the home country of the Campana Brothers – Brazil. A country where the metropolitan jungle sits side by side with the rain forest, where extreme poverty lives next door to economic progress. These two designers, Fernando and Humberto, are artists who revel in the ability to recycle everyday materials, from plastic bottles to cardboard, glass, and to discarded children’s toys.

The presented chandelier ‘Fragments’ is a result of collaboration between Venini and Campana Brothers. It has been made of fragments of broken glass pieces pieces from the Murano Furnace. Fragments is designed according to the principle of the design duo that they have always been faithful to: environmental sustainability and reuse of pre-existing products.
