Brazilian designers Humberto and Fernando Campana will receive the prestigious Designer of the Year Award at this year's Design Miami/."We are thrilled to be able to give the Designer of the Year Award to the Campana brothers, who have made such a significant contribution to contemporary mass manufactured as well as limited edition design," Ambra Medda, Design Miami/ Director comments. "Their joyful and exuberant work incorporates discarded and repurposed objects, numerous references to culture both sophisticated and street, and a loving yet frank social commentary on their native Brazil. They have opened the door for a new generation of designers by creating a language that questions received ideas about Modernism and design."
