what would the world be if everything was pretty? boring according to the campana brothers. their style promotes ugliness. at a workshop held at politecnica di design milan, sponsored by 3M the campana brothers discussed a short history of design in brazil and how they developed their style. first discovered by massimo morozzi for their rope chair, they have since developed pieces for brands such as alessi, edra and cappellini. the brothers prefer to work with their hands using techniques common to villages of brazil.
