Cosentino and Estudio Campana
This is the second time that Cosentino has worked with Fernando and Humberto Campana, two renowned experts in the world of international design. In 2010, they jointly presented the project “Campanas for eCosentino” at Milan Design Week. This project was an artistic interpretation of the recycled surface ECO by Cosentino®, which toured the main European design fairs.
The designers, Humberto and Fernando Campana live and work in Sao Paulo, collaborating with several international industrial and interior design companies. Today their pieces form part of the permanent collections at recognised cultural institutions such as Moma in New York, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, the Vitra Design Museum in Weil am Rhein, Germany and the Museum of Modern Art in Sao Paulo. In 2008, they were awarded the Design of the Year 2008 by Design Miami.
