Gaetano Pesce

Designer

During his career, which spans four decades with commissions in architecture, urban planning, interior, exhibition, and industrial design, Gaetano Pesce, the architect, and designer, has conceived public and private projects in the United States, Europe, Latin America, and Asia. In all his work, he expresses his guiding principle: that modernism is less a style than a method for interpreting the present and hinting at the future in which individuality is preserved and celebrated. Born in La Spezia, Italy, in 1939, Pesce studied Architecture at the University of Venice between 1958 to 1963 and was a participant in Gruppo N, an early collective concerned with programmed art patterned after the Bauhaus.

Exhibited at DESIGN MIAMI.BASEL 2024 Gaetano Pesce, born November 8, 1939 in La Spezia, Italy, is an avant-garde architect and designer renowned for his experimental approach to materials and his bold use of shapes and colors. He is best known for his 'Up Series' armchair (1969), a symbol of social criticism. Pesce left his mark on design and architecture through his rejection of convention, integrating art, design and social criticism in his work. Active since the 1960s, he continues to influence the field with his teaching and innovative creations.
