About the Designer
Humberto Campana, lawyer and Fernando Campana, architect, have been working together in San Paolo since 1983 in the field of artistic design. They came into the limelight in 1989 with the furniture exhibition provocatively entitled "Gli inconfortabili" (The Inconsolable), a political manifesto rather than functional objects. Their radical point of view is strengthened by the use of poor materials and industrial rubbish. Hand-made products represent the possibility of social redemption in a poor country. Their intention is, however, to find a way for Brazilian design, avoiding European colonization. In Italy, they participated in the "Viaggio in Italia" exhibition at Abitare il Tempo in Verona in 1994 and in 1995 at the exhibition organized at the Brazilian Consulate in Milan "Il Brasile fa anche design". In 1997 they designed lights for O Luce. Some of their pieces appear in the International Design Year Book of 1997, edited by Philippe Starck. In 1998 the Moma in New York dedicated the "Progetto 66" exhibition to them, coupled with Ingo Maurer.
Looks great, good for fruit
marianne from Chicago– Verified Buyer
Like this because not only does it look fantastic, but it's good to put fruit in because it allows air to circulate.
Sherlockian fruit bowl
Katrine from Gainesville, FL– Verified Buyer
We saw this bowl in a set on the show Sherlock and loved it at once. We debated for a long time about buying it, and then happened to see that it was available at Wayfair and for a better price. It is an extraordinary design and even nicer in person. The weight of it is very solid and it looks especially good with fruit.
a statement piece
Jonas from anaheim hills– Verified Buyer
Looking at images online, I had a good feeling this would look amazing on my coffee table. It certainly did not disappoint upon arrival. It's on the pricey side but worth every penny.

I liked this product, the only reason I gave it four stars was because it's a bit on the pricey side, but it does look nice and work well.
