4 Cromwell Place’s impressive staircase will be illuminated by an installation of lamps by Martino Gamper.

Gamper is an Italian designer based in London who became internationally regarded through his project 100 Chairs in 100 Days as part of Brompton Design District during London Design Festival 2007.

Working across design and art venues: his practice engages in a variety of projects from exhibition design, interior design, specialist of one-off commission and the design of mass-produced products for the cutting edge of the international furniture industry. Martino has an abiding interest in the social aspects of furniture design. In particular, he has a love of corners and the multiple emotions provoked by the single right-angled boundary.

Alongside this concern with underused spaces, Gamper also nurtures an interest in unwanted objects. Reworking furniture that has been dumped on the streets, he has created a mismatched family of objects. Some are beautiful and some pathetic, but all of it, even the most abject of pieces a euphoria inspired by the escape of destiny.
