This web exhibition features more than thirty objects dating from the 16th to the 20th centuries, selected from the permanent collection of the Cooper-Hewitt Museum by Fernando and Humberto Campana, founders of Est'dio Campana in Sao Paulo, Brazil (an international furniture design studio). Objects in the show include book illustrations, jewelry, furniture, and wallpaper designs, on a theme developed by the Campana Brothers, that they call "Manufacturing Emotions". Online visitors are invited to browse the collection using tags provided by the brothers as an alternative way of organizing the objects in the collection. These unique tags include terms such as entwining, morphing nature, quizzical delicacy, and creating texture. Objects found by clicking on the entwining category range from a glass bowl by William Lequier made in 1984, to a set of bracelets and a necklace made of red-dyed horsehair, from around 1830.
