Allouche Gallery Exhibition "One of a Kind Iconic Works" Invitation

This is a Invitation. It was designed by Gaetano Pesce. It is dated 2015 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is polyurethane resin. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Industrial designer, Gaetano Pesce, has explored the use of resin for objects ranging from furniture to vessels. Pesce doesn't 'push' the material to follow his whim, but lets the flow of the resin determine the final form. The flexibility and irregular form of this invitation to an exhibition of Pesces's work accentuate the random quality of the blue and red striations.

This object was donated by Susan Lewin. It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
