Gaetano Pesce (1939) is a very versatile designer, architect, interior, exhibition and industrial designer. After his architecture degree in Venice he worked in various cultural fields besides design and architecture, such as kinetic and serial art, sculpting and film. He was one of the founders the 'N' Group, a movement that focusses mainly on programmed art. His oeuvre is known for the fact that it blurs the lines between design, art, urban planning and architecture. His use of materials is typical for postmodern design since he makes use of plastic, resin and foam and experiments with new techniques.
