or Call to Order

Light shines over the city as the sun sets on New York; a kalei­do­scope of colors streams through the windows of the skyscrap­ers illu­mi­nat­ing the design screen by Gaetano Pesce. Inspired by the iconic sofa, Pesce has created the trip­tych room divider of the same name that reimag­ines the New York skyline as a work of art for the home. The city the never sleeps” is recre­ated in phases by pouring colored resin into molds, produc­ing, layer by layer, strik­ing hues of the build­ing facades. This complex, hand­crafted process means that no two pieces are exactly alike. Cassina guar­an­tees the unique­ness of each piece with a plaque indi­cat­ing the year of the project, its sequen­tial produc­tion number, the Cassina logo, and the signa­ture of the artist, Gaetano Pesce.

Gaetano Pesce

Italy

As an Italian architect, designer, and urban planner, Gaetano Pesce is best known for his modern aesthetic that incorporates ordinary materials with experimental forms. Born in 1939, Pesce studied architecture at the University of Venice, learning from the tutelage of both Ernesto Rogers and Carlo Scarpa. Throughout 1958-1963, Pesce participated in Gruppo N, a design collaboration that focused on creating art similar in program to that of the Bauhaus. His architectural work often featured natural elements, including his work in Osaka, Japan in creating the Organic Building. Pesce’s industrial design led to collaborations with B&B Italia, Vitra, and Cassini; much of which include pieces that embody his usual wit and style. Many of his 3D models and prototypes are featured in the permanent collections of museums around the world, including MoMA in New York City, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, and the Triennale Museum in Milan.
