Gaetano Pesce, the iconoclastic Italian-born designer, has created six tables evoking waterscapes, which will be displayed at David Gill Galleries in London starting Oct. 4.
The tables are rigid polyurethane foam, PVC and epoxy resin, materials that Mr. Pesce has used for more than 40 years and that he said he likes for their elasticity and sensuality.
The tops are made to look like bodies of water "as you would see them if you were flying over them," Mr. Pesce said from his home in New York. The River table has borders on two sides. The blue of the Lagoon table, which evokes Mr. Pesce's native Venice, is considerably dirtier in color than that of the Ocean table.
The series is "a commentary of what is happening in reality," Mr. Pesce said, adding, "We don't treat water with the respect it deserves."
Through Dec. 22 at 2-4 King Street, London. Information: davidgillgalleries.com.
