BRUNO GAMBONE, Wall Objects 1965 - 1975 & selected works by HERMAN MILLER

The Italian artist and ceramicist Bruno Gambone, son of the famous Gudio Gambone (one of the great Italian ceramicists of the 20th Century), experimented between 1965 and 1975 with materials, colors and forms. Similar to Agosto Bonulami, Enrico Castellani and Paolo Scheggi, he concentrated on the visual perception and the integration between real and virtual space. With dynamically formed relief elements, wall constructions made of wood with canvas, he created sculptural paintings in monochromatic colors. Light and shadow play on the surface, lending the work its strong impact.

In the middle of the 20th Century, the name Herman Miller already stood both nationally and internationally for design innovation and „modern“ furniture. Leading designers such as George Nelson, Charles & Ray Eames and Alexander Gerard were closely linked with the house and formed, through collaboration, not only their careers, but also provided for the growing renown of the company and the produced pieces of furniture that would prove to become the classics of industrial design.
