Gaetano Pesce auction 

One of the most significant British private collections of work by the late great Gaetano Pesce will be up for auction at MODERN MADE at Lyon and Turnbull on April 25th and 26th at the Mall Galleries in London.

Gaetano Pesce was known for his innovative vision and radical design. Developing his own bold aesthetic through the use of vibrant colours, experimental materials, and organic forms, the architect, artist, and designer challenged the boundaries between art, architecture and design and had a huge influence on designers today.
