Martino is a favourite of ours. An Italian designer based in London, he rejects the historic design standard of harmony and symmetry. He apprenticed with a furniture maker in Merano, Italy before studying sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and then completed a masters at the Royal College of Art in London in 2000. Even after designing over 100 chairs, he reckons that ‘there is no perfect chair’!
We love his Cuttings range for J. Hill's Standard and a beautiful video of that collaboration is available here.
