Ettore Sottsass and Martino Gamper are the stars of the exhibition Re – Connection presented by ALPI in their showroom in Via Solferino 7, Milan, which will be opened from 5th to 31st of October.
Re – Connection interfaces the different design approaches of the two designers for ALPI materials, with the innovative wood pattern realized for the company by Ettore Sottsass at the beginning of the 1980s and the interpretation of Martino Gamper.
Two stylistic visions that come together in this material to narrate a story of material and creative reconnections: on the one side a new release of the ALPI Sottsass collection that recaptures the design produced by the designer in its original colors, on the other a development of this wood surface in pieces of furniture realized exclusively by Martino Gamper.
A story that brings to light and celebrates the collaboration between Ettore Sottsass and ALPI born from the same passion for freedom and the pursuit of the aesthetic, and a new meeting with the singularity and contemporaneity of the language of Martino Gamper.
