Martino Hamper

Martino Hamper

American designer Brandon Washington has designed the chair Martino Hamper as an exploration of what humour can do with everyday objects. This chair is a combination of an old dinning chair and a laundry basket. The seat of the chair is formed by a pile of dirty laundry. The designer explained the object in his website, “When it comes to tackling tasks and chores we usually award ourselves after the job is completed. However Martino Hamper rewards the procrastinators and the seat is only functional when your laundry duties have been neglected.” He also explains the reasoning behind the furniture’s name- it is named as Martino Gamper because the object was inspired by the quick furniture collage style of Martino Gamper (who is known by his project 100 Chairs in 100 Days).
