Ironic, inventive, and innovative, Fernando and Humberto have always been inspired by the incredible creativity of popular Brazilian culture. This distinctive trait of their works has spread and consolidated their fame worldwide.
The two brothers have been working together in San Paolo since 1983. Fernando graduated in architecture, while Humberto holds a degree in law and decided to participate in this partnership as a self-taught artist.
In 1989, they created their first collection, the “Desconfortveis”, and later collaborated with Edra on the creation of the “Vermehla Chair”, which is currently exhibited at the MoMA in New York, in collaboration with Ingo Maurer. In 2008, they were awarded the “Designers of the Year” Award by Design Miami and then presented a large retrospective at the Vitra Design Museum called The Antibodies in 2009.
Their collaboration with VENINI began in 2005, with Campane di Campana.
