A CHAIR FOR MARUGAME

Martino Gamper first attracted widespread attention in 2007 with the project 100 Chairs in 100 Days, for which he reworked elements of existing  chairs into a collection of charismatic new pieces of furniture. Taking on the ultimate design object of the chair within severe self-imposed constraints in terms of time and material, the results were odd – at times impractical, at times funny-looking, but always refreshingly unexpected. Drawing upon the history of furniture yet altogether unique and original improvisations, he has toured 99 chairs around the globe, always creating another 100th chair in each new location. For the exhibition Martino Gamper – 100 Chairs in 100 Days in Japan, he will create a yet-unveiled 100th chair from a find in Marugame. Another Gamper-treat!

This might be also a good occasion to pick up mono.kultur #32, to re-read our interview with Martino Gamper, which we published in 2012.
