Martino Gamper "100 chairs in 100 days" at Benaki Museum

On Wednesday 5 June 2013 at 20:00, the Benaki Museum ' s Pireos Annex   will be hosting the opening of an exhibition by avant - garde artist Martino Gamper entitled " 100 chairs in 100 days ", an exhibition which, from 2007 to the present, has been shown at some of the world's greatest museums in England, Austria, France, Germany, Italy and the United States. The exhibition will run until 28 July 2013.

Gamper' s 100 chairs were created in 100 days , using materials from old chairs that the artist found at friends ' homes , bought at markets or collected from the streets of London .

In fact, there are actually 99 chairs, since the 100th one will be created by Gamper in Athens, a few days before the opening.

Gamper's purpose in creating these chairs was to change their character and functionality and thus create new, useful designs by mixing the chairs' original stylistic and constructional elements.

Part of the proceeds will go towards the "ELPIDA" Association of Friends of Children with Cancer.
