Check out this beautiful Hemp Rug from the Campana Brothers. It got featured in the New York Times today as it got sold for the stunning price of $35,575! The Circus Rug was introduced at last year's Milan furniture fair in a limited edition of 10 signed and numbered pieces. The piece is part of the Nodus Collection; a cultural and design enterprise that has teamed famous designers with artisans around the world. Knitted in Nepal, it measures six-and-a-half feet in diameter and is covered with tons of little Brazilian dolls.
The brothers Fernando (1961) and Humberto Campana (1953) are two of the most famous South American designers. Since 1983, Fernando, who graduated in architecture, and Humberto, who studied law, have worked together in the field of design, or better between art and design. In their joint studio, a sort of converted garage, in São Paulo, Brazil, they develop furniture which are often based on everyday, ready-made materials - waste products as well as industrial goods.
If you like this rug just as much as we do, you can buy one of the nine ones left at Parisian art gallery Perimeter Art & Design.
