São Paulo, Brazil
Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana present the Metamorfosi a collection of six pieces – five seating options and one tapestry – inspired by the continually evolving natural world.
For its sustainable nature, Metamorfosi has recently been awarded a 2023 Green Good Design Award by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies.
Each piece is hand–made and one of a kind, living at the intersection between art and design.
Born from both the brand’s shared ethical commitment to a more conscious use of raw materials, this collection represents a dialogue between innovation, craftsmanship, and responsibility.
The project not only encapsulates the essence of the word itself – metamorphosis – through the inventive use of production remnants otherwise destined for landfill, but also embraces a component of social responsibility.
With the collaboration of the social tailor’s atelier CouLture Migrante in Como (Italy), in fact, Metamorfosi has not only given new life and aesthetic dignity to the textile leftovers of Paola Lenti production but has also offered new opportunities for employment to people at risk of social exclusion, people who have been entrusted to the skilled hands of the artisans of Paola Lenti for real and concrete training.
