“There is no perfect chair” declares the designer Martino Gamper, who has been making a chair a day in a bid to make 100 chairs in 100 days.

Using a stock pile of discarded and donated chairs Gamper creates his new chairs from elements of existing ones. By deconstructing the chair he gains a new insight into its construction and use of materials which informs the creation of the new design. The process is immediate, spontaneous like sketching in three dimensions.
