Cooper-Hewitt: An Evening with the Campana Brothers


Fernando and Humberto Campana take a low-tech, artisanal approach to design, employing sustainable, readily available, and often recycled materials to craft high design. Together, the two brothers have designed idiosyncratic, evocative, and sometimes humorous works for Edra and H. Stern, among others. Held in conjunction with the opening of Campana Brothers Select: Works from the Permanent Collection, Cooper-Hewitt invites Roberto Stern of H. Stern and Giuliana Michelotti of Edra to join Curatorial Director Cara McCarty and the Campanas in a discussion of their work.
