The Salle des Arts presents a world preview exhibition of the brothers’ latest designs, which will also be available for purchase.  The furnishings combine natural fibres produced in the central region of Brazil, with decorative elements that have a European influence inspired by Art Deco.

The Salle Saint James will be displaying forbidden jewels to the public eye, with a unique blend of Brazilian influence and the elegance of European fine jewelry.

Finally, a series of sketches, which the Campana Brothers have loaned to the exhibit for the occasion, enables the public to delve further into the creative mind of the two designers.

Thanks to their amazing designs made mostly with recycled materials, the Campana Brothers were able to make a name for themselves in international design. Their success and style have also led to the creation of a new and particularly prolific Brazilian style of design.
