Dots. Changing Shapes and Colours is a collection of designs in ostrich leather by the Campana Brothers, Fenando and Humberto, which will be presented at the Milan Furniture Fair from 12 to 17 April 2011

The Brazilian design duo collaborated with South African leather supplier Klein Karoo company to realise this collection. The aim was to make ostrich leather more spectucular and for it to be appreciated in a new and unexpected way.

The Campana Brothers, known for their interest in experimenting with new materials, incorporated the ostrich leather into every day pieces like stools, table and necklaces. All the objects underline the many applications of this noble material.

Leatherworks and Sushi is a range the Campanas designed for Italian furniture company Edra. Edra focusses on combining technology with craftsmanships, thus a collaboration with Klein Karoo, worked well with cementing their philosophy.
