Legendary Italian designer's exhibition investigates the discoveries of life, in present and future forms, Lin Qi reports.

With a career spanning nearly six decades in architecture, interior and exterior design as well as urban planning, Italian visionary Gaetano Pesce has created a body of work renowned for a highly personalized style, often marked by intense colors and fantastic, sometimes imperfect, forms and anthropomorphic shapes.

The designs are an expression of the 83-year-old's long-standing and unbounded curiosity, as well as his philosophical thinking from multiple perspectives.

Pesce's innovative ideas have broken down the boundaries between art and design. And he dwells on social phenomena that are in need of improvement, rendering his work with a humanistic sensibility and inspiring thoughts of life in the future.

"I believe our work is done to discover what the future holds. Doing the work I do, I allow the future to become the present. And then, at that moment, our work becomes something that is very innovative," Pesce says.

The legendary designer's investigation into human mentality and the possibilities of life is vividly presented at Gaetano Pesce: Nobody's Perfect, an ongoing exhibition at the Today Art Museum in Beijing that examines his work dating back to the 1960s.
