italian born creative martino gamper puts his spin on the traditional bentwood café chair with ‘st. mark’. developed in collaboration with moroso, the chair takes its name from the famous square in london where gamper now resides. the design’s profile is defined by a continuous line that runs from the legs through the back rest, maintaining a streamlined look, while also affording stacking abilities. available in natural ash and a selection of colors, the ‘st. mark’ chair was presented on the occasion of the 2015 salone del mobile.
