Martino Gamper

Martino Gamper was born and spent his childhood in Merano (Italy).After an apprenticeship in cabinet making he studied sculpture and product-design at the University of Applied Art and the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna, in 1996 he moved to Milan working as a freelancer for international renown design studios. In 1998 he moved to London to start a master at the RCA where he then graduated from in 2000. He consequently started his own practice, where he develops and produces a wide range of objects from limited edition to semi-industrial products and site specific installation. His work has been exhibited at V&A, Design Museum, Sotheby’s, Nilufar Gallery, Oxo Tower, Kulturhuset/Stockholm, MAK/Vienna, National Gallery /Oslo and various other Galleries. Behind each of Gamper’s pieces, there is a story, one that involves materials, techniques, people and places. The finished product is a token of all that. It is the lovely looking thing that sits in the brief interlude between making and using.
