Humberto and Fernando Campana have wrapped suede webs around shoes and a bag for Camper to coincide with an exhibition about the Spanish footwear brand at London’s Design Museum. And Interior Design Shop is going to show you everything about the Camper accessories design by Campana Brothers. Check out!
The Campana Brothers (Humberto Campana and Fernando Campana) 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.
The special editions of the Pelotas shoes and a matching bag were created for Life on Foot: Camper at the Design Museum, which celebrates the brand’s 40th anniversary.
The Campana brothers have worked with Camper for many years, designing stores in London, Berlin, New York and São Paulo.
“Our vision for Camper has a strong relation with natural materials,” said the duo. “So we wanted to bring to this collection the same type of concepts that we applied at the Camper stores in New York and São Paulo.”
The main body of the bag is made from llatra – natural palm leaves – and is woven using a technique native to the Spanish island of Mallorca, where Camper was set up 40 years ago.
A red suede shell filled with irregularly shaped holes surrounds the bag and forms a pair of handles at the top.
“Inspired by the idea of roots to create organic shapes with a mix of natural materials, the design of both products incorporates the idea of transformation, reinvention and the integration of craftsmanship and technology – a style of work which the Campana brothers are known for,” said a statement from the Design Museum.

Camper has worked with many international designers on collaborations for shop interiors, pop-up installations and footwear, including Nendo, Jaime Hayón and the Bouroullec brothers. In an interview with Dezeen, the brand’s head Miguel Fluxá said the company’s use of high-profile designers for its stores is more about brand-building than making money.
