Gamper

Martino Gamper designed and made the A Foundation honesty stall, located at Rochelle School, Hoxton. Further collaborations have been proposed for Lawson Park and are perpetually on the horizon.

Martino’s furniture design typically recycles and rethinks old bits of furniture; this strategy is typified by his major project, ‘100 Chairs in 100 Days’ (2007). He has a publicised love of ginger and cooking, and occasionally hosts dinner events in makeshift ‘total’ trattorias.

His designs often find themselves in art contexts; previous commissions have come from Kate MacGarry to design their stand at Frieze Art Fair, and Eastside Projects, to design a book display/shelving unit (both 2010). His 'Arnold Circus' stool is a contemporary classic and can be found in most hip art institutions.
