Awarded as Next Generation Designer of The Year 2017 by Wallpaper* and Officine Panerai, Gustavo Martini was born in Rio de Janeiro – Brazil. As he has lived the majority of his life there, Martini has a strong sense of connection with the city in which he believes combines two contrasting worlds: the metropolis with all the chaos and vertical grey landscape together with the surrounding rain forest and hidden waterfalls. His creations explores these contrasts and carries these mixed realities. By working with a strong identity, he has being known by his ability to produce either products or art installations worldwide. His greatest passion is to create, with complete freedom of expression. Martini explores concepts, forms and volumes to create a stripped experimental language that creates an unique style that can be easily recognized.
