to coincide with martino gamper’s london design festival commission – disco carbonara at coal drops yard – samsung presents idiosincratico: an exposition of the designer’s creative practice.
the samsung space will offer a unique vantage point on gamper’s installation below. as well as viewing the exhibit, visitors can also interact with the latest technology, and take part in an ongoing series of events, workshops and performances.
presenting three significant projects, idiosincratico gives insight into gamper’s creative process – exploring his distinctive and playful approach to dissembling and reinventing familiar domestic objects. at the heart of each of gamper’s projects is the notion of thinking through making and examining how process informs the physical outcome.
for hookaloti, gamper takes a single typology – the wall hook – and riffs on it, improvising with the form, material and expressive possibilities of a simple everyday object. in metamorfosi, a project to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the italian furniture company moroso, gamper takes pieces from their catalogue and cuts and splices them to create a design mash-up. by contrast, arnold circus stool is a project for the public realm initiated to support the regeneration of the landmark site on shoreditch’s boundary estate, london’s first social housing project.
