Gamper Bentwood Chairs
Written by Katie on October 14, 2008. Permalink
Made from tradtional bentwood components, these creative takes on the classic chair are something to see (and perhaps collect as funds permit?).
Martino [Gamper] studied sculpture and product design at the University of Applied Art in Vienna. He went on to do a Masters at the Royal College which he completed in 2000. His work is widely exhibited and he recently won the Wallpaper Magazine ‘Best Alchemist’ award in 2008. Behind each of his pieces is a story involving materials, techniques, people and places. He nurtures an interest in unwanted and disparate objects and by reworking furniture, which he finds on the streets, he creates mismatched families of objects.
Martino has travelled to the old Thonet factory in Croatia to see the bentwood components which he will use in his own inimitable and unexpected way. Three styles are available.
