Renowned for his cross-disciplinary and culturally responsive approach to design, London-based Martino Gamper came to major acclaim with 100 Chairs in 100 Days. In this project Gamper collected disused chairs from alleyways and friends’ homes and reassembled them — one per day — into poetic and often humorous forms. Shown in Australia for the first time, 100 Chairs in 100 Days is an experiment in transforming limitations into possibilities. For RMIT Design Hub, Gamper will create a new version of the 100th chair, fabricated within a single day and only using found materials, structures and designs. The exhibition incorporates a workshop or ‘ideas exchange’ where Gamper will discuss his process-driven practice with local invited designers. Taken from the press release.
