Gaetano Pesce, Crosby Chair, 1999. Rigid polyurethane resin and steel; 31 5/8 x 18 1/4 x 13 1/2 in. Denver Art Museum: Gift of Murray Moss, Moss, New York City, 1999.109.
The brightly colored Crosby chairs sum up Gaetano Pesce’s approach to design. They are made of pliable resin, an industrial synthetic material, treated as if it were a craft material. The colors, details, and dimensions of each chair are unique, while a mold allows for serial production. Pesce made adult and children’s Crosby chairs, which were named for the street address of his New York studio.
