mono.kultur #32 – MARTINO GAMPER

mono.kultur is an interview magazine from Berlin which deals with art and culture – or rather with the people who make them happen – and features one interview per issue.

mono.kultur latest issue – #32 – Martino Gamper: All channels personal – features product designer and artist Martino Gamper who talked about his idea of fun, why a chair is the ultimate challenge and what design has in common with cooking.
