Sculptures by Gustavo Martini seen at São Paulo, São Paulo - Frio – Furniture Archaeology

Frio – Furniture Archaeology

Item details

As soon as invited for the Frio exhibition at the São Paulo Design Weekend, the designer Gustavo Martini immediately identified himself by this exhibition where the choice of materials where not the Brazilians protagonist on the furniture production. Always looking for the specificity of each material, Martini explores each one in its most relevant state. In this installation, the same products are visited by each support in its purest manifestation, creating a contemplative installation that seems to analyze and catalogue the identity of each one, almost as an archaeological discovery.

Meet the Creator

Born in Rio de Janeiro, Gustavo Martini got awarded as Next Generation Designer of The Year 2017 by Wallpaper* and Officine Panerai. His interest in arts began at a young age with drawings, paintings and construction toys that naturally became his profession. During his graduation, he won the Idea Brazil Award and has continued to receive increased media attention as a young upcoming Brazilian author. On his Studio at the very first year, he was invited to exhibit at the Miami Art. As he has lived the majority of his life in Rio, Martini has a strong sense of connection with the city which he believes combines two contrasting worlds. This includes the metropolis with all the chaos and vertical grey landscape together with the surrounding rain forest and hidden waterfalls. Currently, Martini lives in Milan after completing a Master graduation at Istituto Marangoni where he became I’M ambassador. By working with strong identity, he has being known by his ability to produce either products or art installations worldwide. His greatest passion is to create, with complete freedom of expression. Martini typically spends the days exploring concepts, forms and volume to create a stripped experimental language that creates a unique style that can be easily recognized. Recently he collaborated with Giulio Cappellini other than having presented a sculpture at the Venice Arsenale, participated in Art markets like Piasa and also ADA which is a project by the art advisor from Floridi Doria Pamphilj family and also presented an installation for Alcantara in the renowned MAXXI museum in Rome.
