Martino Gamper

Working across design and art venues, Gamper’s practice engages in a variety of projects from exhibition design, interior design, one-off commissions and the design of mass-produced products for the cutting edge of the international furniture industry. Martino has an abiding interest in the social aspects of furniture design. In particular, he has a love of corners and the multiple emotions provoked by the single right-angled boundary. Alongside this concern with underused spaces, Gamper also nurtures an interest in unwanted objects. Reworking furniture that has been dumped on the streets, he has created a mismatched family of objects. Gamper has designed and produced commissions for Design Museum, London, Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Wellcome Trust, London; Triennale Design Museum Milano; Yerba Buena Centre, San Francisco; Frieze Art Fair, London; Royal College of Art, London, among many others.
