About The Artwork

From Martino Gamper’s ‘Sitzung’ exhibition (meaning both seating and meeting), this chair is one in a series made for an installation at Munich’s Haus der Kunst. The chairs have been made in a variety of ways, including craft and industrial processes, and using a wide range of materials. The chairs highlight the designer’s unique knack for seamlessly blending different types of wood to create one harmonious piece. Gamper has worked with Italian designers ALPI, layering veneers of various woods to create something completely new. The contrasting grains and tones are revealed as the chair is sanded and milled. Speaking about the project, Gamper says “The chairs will be experimental, fit for purpose but imperfect, rather than products they are vehicles to explore seating as a sculptural object.”
