Gaetano Pesce studied architecture in Venice and attended the Venice Institute of Industrial design. At this experimental school, he met Milena Vettore with whom he opened a studio in Padua, founding in 1959 the “N” Group which focused on studies in programmed art. Since 1962 he has worked in design, experimenting with new materials and unusual shapes. In 1971 he collaborated with BracciodiFerro (then part of the Cassina group) for the production of certain experimental objects and in 1972 he took part in the famous exhibition 'Italy: The New Domestic Landscape' at MoMA in New York. Experimentation and irony are exhibited in his projects for Cassina, including Tramonto a New York sofa designed in 1980 and the Feltri armchair designed in 1987. After a long period in Paris, he moved to New York in 1983 and now lives and works there. Examples of his work are found in the most important design museums all over the world.
