100 Chairs in 100 Days in 100 Ways

Martino Gamper

100 Chairs in 100 Days in 100 Ways

Dent de Leone, 2007

This collection of chairs is the result of a challenge Gamper threw himself into, using a sampling like making process, which he describes as ‘3D drawing’. The subversive re assembly of machine produced and hand-made elements highlight the intrinsic value of discarded materials and produces pieces that challenge preconceptions of typology, aesthetics and value.
