GAETANO PESCE "TUTTI FRUTI" BOWL
Gaetano Pesce (b. 1939) has designed for a host of major furniture studios/manufacturers including Cassina, B&B Italia, and Vitra to mention a few.
The best examples of Pesce's FISH creations are the pieces where the production form, intentionally or not, becomes a decorative characteristic.
Pesce named these large, wide bowls as "Tutti Frutti" even though they have been realized via several different production methods.
This example appears to have been created from a giant tube of magical toothpaste.
Like the best examples from this series most viewers assume that the vessels are hard, but are soon delighted and surprised to discover its soft and bendable, but solid, structure.
Made of a patented dynamic resin created by Pesce’s studio, each vessel is an original as the manufacturing process creates varied color distributions and proportions while adhering to a general form.
Incredibly tactile, the resin body is fascinatingly soft yet completely retains it shape.
This model, in a fantastic evergreen color with a subtle sheen, makes a fantastic sculptural centerpiece.
