INNESTO, RUBBING UP THE WRONG TREE By Martino Gamper
Grafting is used when a gardener wants to grow a new branch onto an established plant. The graft can lead the specimen to generate something very different out of its original form.
The master furniture for this project was acquired by Gamper from an antique dealer. Unwanted by the former owner and left to anguish like neglected rootstock, the pieces were in poor condition. Once they were safe in the studio, Gamper measured, photographed, disassembled and then digitally re-drew these prototypes long hidden in view in mothball obscurity.
