Duccio Maria Gambi’s work is heterogeneous because heterogeneous is the broad path he explored before opening his studio in Paris in 2012.
He has a solid theoretical background acquired during his studies of the Radical Movement in Florence and during his years of interior design studies in Milan. His work transcribes the constraints and industrial and artisanal issues thanks to his professional experiences in design studios and workshops.
He learned the mastery of different production and creation processes, during a fundamental experience at Atelier Van Lieshout in Rotterdam. His permanent interest in discarded materials and his experiences of collaboration with French architects in public installations, led him to co-found “Chapter 0”, a creation laboratory and workshop in the “guerrilla” style for furniture in public space.
His work, often focused on concrete pouring and experimentation, consists of creating custom furniture for private clients looking for unique pieces, participating in exhibitions in design galleries (Nero and Rossana Orlandi in Italy, Bensimon and Tools in Paris, Mint and Seeds in London, Aybar in Miami) as well as site-specific interventions.
He is now based in his hometown of Florence. Duccio started a collaboration with THE ART DESIGN LAB in 2020 during the DESIGN x LIFE event, a charity sale organized with Sam Baron, for the benefit of the APHP.
