Martino Gamper: design is a state of mind @SerpentineUK

There are lots of different types of shelves and shelving units in the Sackler Gallery, as chosen by Martino Gamper for Design is a state of mind. Mostly, they host curious objects. Kitsch memorabilia.

Gamper seems to be saying very loudly ‘form follows function’.

But then you realise the form is the function. The beauty is in the shelving.

I think this is absolutely right. We tend to buy the dresser or install the mantelpiece before we have chosen what to display.

I could have spent hours here admiring shelves. No, really.
