Pesce in Philly
Edited by Sheila Kim-Jamet -- Interior Design, 10/1/2005 12:00:00 AM
Interiors, furniture, teaching, films—this Italian architect has done it all. Now he's consulting on the installation of the Philadelphia Museum of Art's "Gaetano Pesce: Pushing the Limits." The featured furniture, lighting, sketches, and models explore Pesce's hallmark experiments with nonstandard materials and production processes. Key among the roughly 20 pieces on view: his Up 5 chair in polyurethane foam from 1969 and his Alda lamp in polyurethane resin, 2003.
Additionally, the museum will honor Pesce with its annual Collab's Design Excellence Award, presented at the exhibition's opening. November 18–April 9; 215-763-8100; philamuseum.org.
