The chair from the limited collection Gio Ponti translated by Martino Gamper is a reinterpretation of the furnishing that Ponti designed for the Hotel Parco dei Principi in Sorrento, (Italy) which Martino created for Nilufar out of a unique performative event held at the gallery in via della Spiga in 2007. Martino Gamper loves to deconstruct the past to build the present: in his creative process, deconstruction is a path to knowledge that triggers action towards re-invention, re-thinking, re possession even of a museum-like object expressively to re-create a new destiny for it in a continuous dialogic shift between art, craftsmanship and design, where nothing goes lost but everything is renewed into a multifaceted character of our living environment. Italian-born London-based, Martino keeps collaborating with Nilufar on a regular basis especially for custom and commissioned designs while his most seminal works, such as the 100 Chairs in 100 Days, are exhibited in museums and institutions all over the world.
