The Campana Brothers (Humberto Campana, b. 1953 and Fernando Campana, b. 1961) are Brazilian designers.

In 1983, the two brothers teamed up to make furniture made of ordinary materials including scrap and waste products such as cardboard, rope, cloth and wood scraps, plastic tubes and aluminium wire.[1] From 1997, some of their products including the Vermelha chair began to be produced and sold in Italy.[1]

In 1998 the Campana Brothers became the first Brazilian artists to exhibit their work at The Museum of Modern Art in New York, along with German lighting designer Ingo Maurer.[1]
