Gaetano Pesce, born in Genoa, studies architecture and industrial design in Italy. Success came in 1969 when he created the famous Up armchair, in collaboration with B&B Italia.
A great triumph for his career was in 1972 where he exhibited the Housing Unit for Two People project (an underground dwelling, isolated from the outside world) at the exhibition "Italy the new domestic violence" at the MOMA in New York.
In addition to the great worldwide success received in previous years, Gaetano Pesce also works as an architect, building skyscrapers in Manhattan and São Paulo Brazil.
In the mid-90s he had the brilliant idea of using resin, an industrial material, to create pieces of art and design.
He creates a unique collection of vases and placemats in collaboration with Corsi Design, which are still recognized all over the world as a brilliant achievement of Made in Italy.
Everyone has a right to their own difference. Diversity is vital, without it we would have nothing to say
In 2005 the Milan Triennale
dedicated a large exhibition to him "The noise of time", divided into nine chapters. One concerned “Femininity and masculinity as engines of the project” and in this regard, he declared: “Today I am interested in femininity. Progress means giving the feminine the opportunity to express itself. Things done with the feminine brim can be innovative, while still being soft, sensual, perfumed and changeable ”.
The creative path of Gaetano, his works and his important awards have made him famous all over the world, celebrating Italian craftsmanship.
