Gaetano Pesce’s Dujardin Presented by LAFFANOUR–Galerie Downtown

In 1994, the talented italian designer Gaetano Pesce is commissioned to create the architecture and the interior for Dujardin children store on the Belgian coastline Knokke-Le-Zout. This opportunity allowed Pesce once again to combine utility with joyness, Art and Design, aesthetics with functionality.
 
In the heart of Deauville of the North, the architect offers us the essence of his artistic research with a succession of colors, lines, shapes and materials perfectly representative of his work, his sense of humor, his style and innovative ideas.
 
This playful, rich and colorful architecture retains its usefulness, but is armed with a new function. It is no longer just about designing industrialized forms, for Gaetano Pesce design becomes the real support for an artistic, political or social discourse.
 
Always eager to shake up the codes and common ideas, Pesce continues to surprise us almost 24 years after the creation of Dujardin store. 
 
Galerie Downtown-François Laffanour is delighted to make you discover for the first time his interior architecture for Dujardin Store during Design/Miami, Basel.
