Gaetano Pesce



1989 major monograph on the outstanding work of Italian architect and designer, Gaetano Pesce. Generously goes into great depth, covering the subject matter explored in Pesce’s experimental furniture, building and environment designs (along with film, theatre designs, eyewear, Vittel water bottles, lamps, etc.). His incredible furniture and lamp work in foams and resins has been exhibited all over the world since the 1960s and is work is held in major museum collections.

Gaetano Pesce was born in Italy in 1939 and studied architecture at the University of Venice. After graduating in 1965, he moved between London, Padova, Helsinki, and Paris, before settling in New York in 1980. From the beginning, Pesce’s practice has straddled the boundaries between art, design, urban planning, and architecture, always using his work as a vehicle to communicate his perspective on the world today.

With resin, foam, and plastics as his signature materials, Pesce has designed for companies such as Cassina, B&B Italia, and Vitra. His architectural work includes the Organic Building of Osaka, the Children’s House for Parc de la Villette, the Gallery Mourmons in Belgium, and the TBWA\Chiat\Day office in New York.

Pesce has served as a visiting lecturer and professor at many prestigious institutions in America and abroad, principally the Cooper Union in New York. He is currently a faculty member at the Institut d’Architecture et d’Etude Urbaines in Strasbourg.
