Alessi Peneira Basket by Campana brothers, Peneira baskets are about simplicity of materials and inventive design ability. Peneira collection is a new collection of baskets designed by the Campana brothers for Alessi. A hallmark throughout the Brazilian duo's work, these products are made of simple, basic materials that attain their level of sophistication by skillfully and cleverly combining them.

  • The malleability of the metal mesh used for the layers gives the product a blurry, out-of-focus transparency, while the tailored, natural fiber trimming used to finish the piece's rim softens the final product.
  • With this project, the Campanas have successfully transformed the mechanical strength of steel mesh into a series of very delicate and impalpable baskets : "We called this collection Peneira: a word meaning sieve in Portuguese, used by Brazilian Indians
  • The translation from the handmade prototype to the industrial process maintains the original spirit of our creations and demonstrates once again how the refined craftsmanship in our design perfectly combines with the technical know-how of Alessi's production."

Campana brothers

Campana brothers
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 colonisation. In Italy, they participated in the "Viaggio in Italia" exhibition at Abitare il Tempo in Verona in 1994 and in 1995 at the exhibition organised 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.
