Rare 'Rag' wall light by Gaetano Pesce for Fish Design. The name comes from a hung old rag or towel that emphasizes the simplicity of the design. Gaetano Pesce has become known for his radical 'anti' design and his experiments with new materials. In the sixties became famous with his Up-Series, chairs compressed and vacuum-packed in PVC wrappers, literally bounced up when unwrapped. In the 1980s he designed his furniture of polyurethane resin, such as the Green Street Chair and the Broadway Chair. This wall light is also made of polyurethane resin, the golden almost abstract lines show a face, two eyes, a nose and mouth. Each piece is unique in form, and for the combinations of colors. It's marked with the stamp Fish Design and numbered. This is number 63. Fish Design, Pesce Desegno in Italian, operated from 1995 out of New York and produces today in Milan, Italy, the country of origin of its nature. The light is fixed to the wall with a metal frame with two wooden balls.
