NEO - a tumbler with contemporary ornament. Martino Gamper is known for his curiosity and his radical sense for experimentation. A very simple Double old fashioned whiskey tumbler gets transformed by cutting, engraving, polishing, sand-blasting, hand-painting, gilding, and lustre painting.
“I wanted to take on the challenge of creating a contemporary ornament using the traditional Lobmeyr-techniques.”
The project is part of the Vienna Design Week 2016 “Passionswege” project. The one-off prototypes are signed and sold as one group of 53 glasses. All single items will be produced on order.
Martino was born and raised in Merano, studied in Vienna and works and lives in London. Working across the fields of design an art, his practice engages in a variety of projects from exhibition design, interior design, one-off commissions and designs of products for the international furniture industry.
