MILAN: Salone del Mobile 2010 - Martino Gamper

The architects and designers.  Martino Gamper.

Martino Gamper for Established & Sons.   The Sessel chair designed by Martino Gamper for Established & Sons.  His creation of the Sessel was driven by a fascination of the traditional bentwood archetype and the way in which its industrialised production has been mastered throughout the 150 year long history.  Aspiring to create his first production chair, Gamper dissembled the bentwood to then rejoin the components and letting the assembly of the pieces create the Sessel’s shape. Rather than aiming to revolutionise the bentwood chair, Gamper decided to tweak the iconic original.

Martino Gamper for Nilufar. L’Arco della Pace bookcase designed by Martino Gamper, in coloured veneering and poplar plywood is a unique one off piece for Nilufar Edition.
