Martino Gamper is an Italian designer who lives in London and is a tutor at the Royal College of Art. His first exhibition in London was in 2007 and was entitled 100 Chairs in 100 Days. Unsurprisingly it was an exhibition of 100 chairs… and it brought him international fame. So now he’s raided his friends’ houses, and come up with twenty six sets of shelving
Some of it is extremely functional, industrial shelving. Some is irritatingly impractical, some whimsical, and some extremely practical. The exhibition includes nearly 300 catalogued objects sitting on the shelves, chosen largely to be whimsical.
