It's amazing what Nido Campolongo does with junk. Cardboard, paper, packing peanuts—among many other materials the 51-year-old designer scavenges from the city's garbage—are turned into light fixtures, tables, chairs, and fashion accessories. His cutout cardboard bags have a Pop Art, Courrèges-like feel; the miniature rose bouquets made of recycled paper are marvelous. Campolongo has shown his work in New York and Paris, and several of his pieces are in private collections around the world. But the only place you can buy his work is at his Pacaembu studio. By appointment only. At 843 Rua Tupi; 55-11/ 3826-7901; nidocampolongo.com.br.
