our Gallery Director, Brent Lewis, had the opportunity to sit down with Gaetano and discuss his long history (over four decades now) of working to create objects that reflect not only humanity, but also political, social and artistic issues. His diversified series production ensures that each chair, table or vase he produces is unique with its own character and identity. He builds into each production process room for chance and human intervention to affect the outcome of a piece. Still working, he is introducing new designs this Spring in Milan, and we continue to represent him here at Moss. He is a committed artist, thinker, architect and designer and we are honored to know him and represent his work.A portion of that interview was recently published by MODERN Magazine and is below.
moss bureau blog is the covert gateway to the inner world of Moss Bureau. Behind the scenes, through the looking glass, up the down staircase, over the rainbow, all around the town. Our town. Our Town. We cover the bureau-front, from top to topless, stem to stern, sea to shining see. We open drawers and draw our own conclusions. The designers, the artists, the interns, friends and foes, clients and miscreants, consultants and co-defendants, the Fairs and the unfair, the good fight and the bad lieutenant, lies, truths, massive cover-ups, mitigating circumstances, plausible deniabilities. The undercooked and the overlooked. Wet-work, dry wall, the dog, the pony, the smoke and the mirrors. We look down the barrel, pull the trigger, and face the music. Fearless, feckless, and born to run. Sometimes a cigar really is just a cigar. Think different. It’s later than you think.
