For Bildmuseet, Campanas created a site-specific room installation titled Woods, inspired by nature and composed of flax and wood.
“We found the inspiration in nature”, explains Humberto Campana. “The message we wanted to generate was bringing nature indoors. The forest taking its place back and turning tables” he says.

In their furniture making Campanas uses everyday materials such as rope, cardboard, stuffed toy animals, blankets, bamboo and plastic tubes. Even in the creation process for the installation at Bildmuseet they approached different materials with the goal of utilizing them differently; this time sourcing material from the Swedish countryside. Their way of working is characterized by a free mindset, unconditional and without predetermined parameters. The results are proofs of this organic process.
