Martino Gamper

Martino Gamper’s furniture have been known for a while but it’s not just objects that he’s work is all about. In his work Gamper focuses on creating "situations" that allow for social interactions, creating site-specific installations and organising special events.
My favorite Gamper’s project is now nearly two years old, “100 Chairs in 100 Days” exhibited in Design Museum in London (November 2007) in which he shows his love for objects with a story to tell.
Here the Italian designer took on a challenge of making 100 chairs in 100 days, using found and discarded furniture. In this rapid process Gamper managed, with great sensitivity, to create incredibly beautiful collection of objects that engage us with their collage-like story telling.
