Andrea Divirgilio / September 27, 2012

The Italian artist, designer and architect Gaetano Pesce is known for his designs that knows no dimensions; from designing buildings to interiors and everyday objects — Gaetano’s diverse body of work has appealed to the design lovers around the world. The multidisciplinary artist has found his inspiration in the nature for his series of six water tables. Inspired by aerial view of bodies of water- oceans, lagoons, rivers, lakes, ponds and puddles, seen from 10,000m above, the waterscape tables looks more like mini islands designed to fit right inside your home. Each table is different from another, to resemble the type of water source it was inspired by, and are handcrafted to detail featuring the complete landscape and with attention to every detail in terms of the surface, depth and density such as minute cliff, pier or trees in proportion to the aerial view.

‘Architecture of the recent past has mostly produced cold, anonymous, monolithic, antiseptic, standardised results that are uninspiring. I have tried to communicate feelings of surprise, discovery, optimism, stimulation, sensuality, generosity, joy and femininity,’ says the revered artist.
