fernando and humberto campana combine craftsmanship and high-end technology in a family of chairs and tables for a lot of brasil — a brand which looks towards environmental sustainability, and the employment of sophisticated manufacturing techniques in the realization of their furniture. the campana’s ‘estrella’ collection draws its formal influences from the ‘bolacha do mar’ (a close relative of the starfish), in which the repetition of the celestial-like motif defines the shape and structure of the pieces. the natural form of the echinoderm, reinterpreted and stylized, is multiplied in different sizes creating an original texture.

presented at the 2015 salone del mobile, ‘estrella’ designs are made from metal that has been laser cut and welded together, achieving a very thin and light presence in which many ‘stars’ comprise each furniture object. the collection consists of an armchair, a chair, tables, a sofa and lamps.

 

as many of our concepts, our inspiration came from nature. for our first collaboration with a lot of, we were inspired by sea stars. when designing the pieces of furniture, we imagined a colony of sea stars all together‘, says humberto campana. ‘a lot of was able to translate our design universe into a beautiful and democratic collection of furniture using fine techniques to weld the steel and coat it with epoxy painting in bright colours‘, adds fernando campana.
