“I have something for you, I’ll send it over. You know for four years now I have been trying to propagate shiso and it hasn’t grown. I tried everything: freezing and thawing the seeds, leaving them in the dark for a year, different temperatures and humidity… The seeds Taro sent me in February came up no problem, just in fine soil with a sheet of paper over the pot outside, no special equipment or lights. Crazy. The kitchen garden at home is now being taken over by green shiso plants with huge leaves everywhere. We have a glut, as the English call it. Fearful of it not reseeding and growing next year I’ve been stripping the leaves and producing shiso sugar syrup and shiso-infused vodka. The vodka is unbelievably good! I thought of proposing it to ABSOLUT as a new flavour. We’ll see. Anyway, I have a bottle for you! ”

100 Chairs in 100 Days and its 100 Ways by Martino Gamper

Martino Gamper made a chair a day in a bid to make 100 chairs in 100 days. Using a stock pile of discarded and donated chairs, Gamper created his new chairs from elements of existing ones. By deconstructing the chair he gains a new insight into its construction and use of materials which informs the creation of the new design. The process is immediate and spontaneous, like sketching in three dimensions

Piccolo Volume II – Martino Gamper

Piccolo Volume II

This publication follows up the 100 chairs in 100 days book by Martino Gamper. He’s been busy making more chairs, tables to go with, food to eat and additional pieces for the feet, buttocks and eyes. Martino also cut up Ponti—sorry Gio!—resulting in second-hand furnitures which are new to all of us (including to Gio).

Every Colour by Itself – Francis Upritchard

Posted in Motto Berlin store on October 9th, 2009


Every Colour by Itself

What is exciting is that it is like a ladybird book but the size of a National Geographic magazine. It is stuffed with 96 pages of incredibly colourful fluorescent pictures of naked men and ladies sculptures by Francis Upritchard. As sculptures have a tendency to show a unique view in publications, they decided to go full frontal and backside for most, side view for some.
