Martino Gamper Furniture and Accessories at Everyday Needs

May 21, 2013

Stylist and designer Katie Lockhart of Everyday Needs has focused her eye on Martino Gamper, an Italian designer based in the UK who, as Lockhart says, “nurtures an interest in found and unwanted objects. Reworking furniture that he finds in skips and on the streets, he has created an eclectic and mismatched family of objects.”

Martino Gamper Candle Set

Above: A Candle Set designed exclusively for Everyday Needs from copper, brass, and steel; all metals sourced from found objects. The set of three candles and their holders are $150 NZD.

Martino Gamper Shelving 02

Above: The Turnaround Issue 01 shelving is made from reclaimed spindles and Pacific Rimu. The single piece was part of a 2011 show at the Govett Brewster Gallery, Gesamtkunsthandwerk (meaning “total artwork” in German). Working with Francis Upritchard and Karl Fritsch, Gamper created an environment of furniture, art, and jewelry in a domesticated gallery setting. Contact Everyday Needs for pricing and information.
