Brussels - Art has always been in an integral part of Campari’s history. Today Campari translates this heritage into a collection of unique coasters, designed by the creative agency FamousGrey and developed in collaboration with World Press Photo Winner Sanne De Wilde and visual artist Athos Burez. These transparent coasters can be used as filters for smartphone cameras. This makes it possible to capture Campari moments in a unique, stylish and high-quality manner, fully in line with the brand’s universe. A clever way for Campari to celebrate its artistic heritage in a contemporary way and claim the Aperitif moment.
Coasters shed new light on the Aperitif moment
At a time when even smartphones have their place at the table, Campari has developed an exclusive collection of four designer coasters that can also be used as photofilters. The designs of the Campari Filters are created together with World Press Photo Winner Sanne De Wilde and visual artist Athos Burez and are based on projects of theirs, where light and colours have played a crucial role. The outcome is red and blue tinted works of art with endless possibilities for creating photos. The slightest movement or change in light intensity gives a different, but equally special result.
“When developing these coasters, we wanted everyone to be able to easily choose the effects and colours that appealed to them.” Sanne De Wilde
“The filters we developed in our present collaboration are very different to Instagram filters, with each photo ultimately looking the same. On the other hand, these filters allow everyone to create their own universe with a unique atmosphere that combines different shades and perspectives.” Athos Burez.
4 coasters, 4 pieces of art
It is not only the design of the coasters that has been thought through by two renowned artists. The coasters themselves are also a piece of art. It was a real challenge to give the filters the exact shades of red and blue and to get their intensity right. The translucent filter inks that were used, are only available in four basic colours. In order to achieve the precise hue, the colours needed to be mixed with non-transparent white ink. The art was in finding the perfect balance between colour intensity and transparency. The material of the coasters has also been carefully selected. The chosen plexi ensures that the filter inks flourish in perfect harmony.
Launched in Brussels Art Gallery
The Campari Filters were officially presented in the Brussels art gallery Vanhaerents Art Collection, in the presence of 30 selected Belgian photographers.
“It was great to see all those photographers experimenting with the filters,” recalls Sanne, “because the graphics of the filters are based on our own photos, and now they were being used to create new photos.”

Campari is a contemporary and charismatic classic. The secret recipe, which has remained unchanged, originated in Novara in 1860 and is the base for some of the most famous cocktails around the world. Campari is an alcoholic drink obtained from the infusion of bitter herbs, aromatic plants and fruit in alcohol and water. With its vibrant red colour, intense aroma and inspiring flavour, Campari has always been a symbol of intrigue and pleasure, and an integral part of an exciting drinking experience. Based on these values, Campari has become a world-famous brand and a symbol of Italian passion, style and excellence.
