posted by Saskia Pomeroy March 10, 2014

Head to the Serpentine gallery this month and see guest curator Martino Gamper’s new exhibition “design is a state of mind”. The show presents a selection of shelving systems, telling the story of each piece and the reactive effect they have on people and their surroundings. “An extensive display of shelving systems from the 1930s to the present day will form the backbone of the exhibition. Ranging from historic design classics and one-off pieces, to industrial, utilitarian, contemporary and newly commissioned work, the exhibition will include designs by Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass, Ercol,Gio Ponti and IKEA.”

Martino Gamper said,“There is no perfect design and there is no über-design. Objects talk to us personally. Some might be more functional than others, and the emotional attachment is very individual. This exhibition will showcase a very personal way of collecting and gathering objects – these are pieces that tell a tale.”
