St Mark, chair
(December27, 2015) St Mark, chair by Martino Gamper,
A homage to the “lowly” tradition of the chair made contemporary by using two apparently contrasting materials. Two versions, as if wood and aluminium, in overcoming the distinction between artisan and industrial production, were one the consequence of the other. And vice versa. With its solidity and comfort the form appears to suggest the modus operandi of master joiners of the pre-industrial age. The back contains and guarantees the utmost in ergonomics while aluminium, as well as considerably reducing its weight, allows for outdoor use. Stackable, coloured and comfortable, St. Mark finds its beauty in the simplicity and in the versatility of use, allowing a contemporary restyling of any type of space, from the public area to the home environment.
Chair in ash varnished open-pore matte, laquered matt or in aluminum satin matte.
