A recalled dialogue from some time ago:
Martino: I will make 100 chairs
åbäke: What, the same one 100 times?
M: No, they will be different. They’ll be actual size 3D sketching, somehow, you know, instead of drawing on a piece of paper.
å: Sounds great. Do it in 100 days then.
We know Martino through the London-based design collective Åbäke – he co-founded publishing house Dent-De-Leone with Åbäke members Kajsa Ståhl and Maki Suzuki. For us, his work is like walking down a side street in a town in northern Italy, going from one trattoria to another. He contributed to one of our earliest cookbooks, and is world-renowned for his love of ginger.
