A 100 Chairs....by Roxane Danset

"Martino's 100 chairs are like being a kid and possessing a bag with 100 different sorts of sweets in...
Keep going Martino, you're rocking it!"

“There is no perfect chair” claimed italian designer Martino Gamper when starting his project 100 chairs in 100 days back in 2005, now on show at the Triennale di Milano until the 8th of November. These 100 chairs, created by assembling parts of classic design masterpieces and unknown furnitures, are the proof of his uncommon and unique approach to the design process. With a fertile interest in other fields of applied arts, Martino Gamper creates amazing but coherent objects that are full of content that work as a three-dimensional sketchbook to rethink the practice.
Next to the chair installation is Total Trattoria, a temporary side event of the show where Gamper similarly mixes up basic ingredients to prepare dishes on spot to entertain his guests, sitting around the tables that he designed himself.
