An interpreted fragment to put back together for creating something new, something contemporary.
Martino Gamper | Frammenti
Martino Gamper, Italian designer, was born in Merano in 1971. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and after the graduation, started his brilliant design career. In 2015, he won the Brera Design District award for “Progetto Forma Identità”. Gamper was awarded in the eighth edition of the “British Art Show”, an exhibition that rewards the most brilliant talent of the visual culture of Great Britain, and for “Post Forma”, a project in collaboration with Yorkshire craftsmen which aims to revitalise broken and overlooked objects.
Gamper was the recipient of the Moroso Award for Contemporary Art, the Wallpaper Award for Best Use of Colour in 2011 and the Wallpaper Award for Best Alchemist. He owes his international fame to the “A 100 Chairs in 100 Days and its 100 Ways” project, which he began in 2005: specialising in the reuse of unused materials, he collected 100 scrapped chairs and reassembled them in new combinations. He designed Prada Corners, a shop window concept that pays homage to a geometrical symbol – the corner – and creates perspective within the display area.
With the FRAMMENTI collection designed for CEDIT – Ceramiche d’Italia, Martino Gamper takes the personalisation of interiors to new heights, by introducing of an innovative decorative concept.
