OUTER SPACE MON­STERS

Hong Kong Tatler Homes - - EUROCUCINA 2018 - BY FER­NANDO AND HUM­BERTO CAM­PANA

The Cam­pana broth­ers tapped into their in­ner child to cre­ate Flix and Flex—space-age fig­ures that come in four colours, al­most like the adult equiv­a­lent of the Trans­former toys. “This came from my child­hood when I started watch­ing TV,” says Hum­berto Cam­pana. “I was fas­ci­nated by space­ships and life out­side of earth.”

Cre­at­ing Flix and Flex also re­minded Cam­pana of an­other as­pect of his child­hood. “When I watched Stan­ley Kubrick’s 2001, I was very up­set be­cause I couldn’t buy the space­ship. When we were back home, we started mak­ing our space­ships from the cac­tus in the sur­round­ing coun­try­side.”
