When fur­ni­ture de­signer Martino Gam­per and pho­tog­ra­pher Brigitte Nie­der­mair were asked to work on a 40th an­niver­sary project for Ital­ian tex­tile house Dedar, it was a slow web con­nec­tion that be­came the un­likely ba­sis for their con­cept. Driv­ing through the Ital­ian coun­try­side, the pair looked up an image on a mo­bile phone only to find the screen filled with colour­ful boxes while it loaded. En­tranced, they then trans­formed blue mas­ter­pieces by Henri Matisse, Yves Klein, Pi­casso, Giotto and oth­ers into this blocky for­mat, cre­at­ing five ‘Screenshot’ images, dig­i­tally printed onto pan­els of Dedar’s lux­u­ri­ously thick ‘Tab­u­larasa’ cot­ton. Framed in teak and brass, the de­signs can be hung as works of art, or slot­ted to­gether to cover a wall. Plus, Gam­per cre­ated a teak box that can be in­cor­po­rated into the pan­els, turn­ing them into a shelv­ing unit. £5,200 (
