Martino Gamper

“True ugliness can be a treat.”

" I didn’t make one hundred chairs just for myself or even in an effort to rescue a few hundred unwanted chairs from the streets. The motivation was the methodology: the process of making, of producing and absolutely not striving for the perfect one. This kind of making was very much about restrictions rather than freedom. The restrictions were key: the material, the style or the design of the found chairs and the time available — just a 100 days. Each new chair had to be unique, that’s what kept me working toward the elusive one-hundredth chair." Martino Gamper

If this does not inspire you with it's pure madness and lust for creativity  . . . I don't know what will, wild and wonderful.
