Gaetano Pesce receives Andrée Putman Lifetime Achievement Award

 

Renowned Italian architect and designer Gaetano Pesce has been announced as the recipient of the prestigious Andrée Putman Lifetime Achievement Award to be presented during the Créateurs Design Awards ceremony on January 20, 2024, in Paris. With a remarkable six-decade career that encompasses architecture, urban planning, interior design, exhibitions, and industrial design, Pesce’s global portfolio boasts a multitude of designs that express his ability to experiment with new materials and shape and his creative curiosity. 

In an interview with designboom, when asked what his strongest skill is, Gaetano Pesce said,‘I think if you are curious, it’s a very important quality. Curiosity is a spring for going on in history, in the future, and in the present. Curiosity pushes mentality, which pushes ideas to be discovered. Even now, I am very curious. When there is something I don’t understand, I try to understand. That is a very healthy attitude for a creative person.’ 

 

Throughout his career, Pesce has consistently adhered to his core belief: modernism transcends mere style and serves as a method for interpreting the present while offering glimpses of the future, all while celebrating individuality. Over the years, he has engaged in collaborations with a multitude of creative minds and renowned brands, and 2023 has proven to be quite an active year for iconic partnerships. His recent ventures encompass an expansive cavernous environment for the Bottega Veneta store in Milan, as well as a vibrant exhibition of his radical works organized by Meritalia at Triennale Milano.

about the Créateurs Design Awards ceremony

 

‘I have a very clear idea about me, which is that I don’t know myself. Because I change. Tomorrow I can be different. This is my personality. Fortunately, because I hate to always be the same. Thank you very much for recognizing that I exist with my work and thank you very much for recognizing that my work has relevance in the field of culture,’ said Gaetano Pesce. 

 

The Créateurs Design Awards ceremony is poised to ignite a vibrant celebration of creativity and inspiration, serving as a unifying platform for luminaries and influencers across the realms of design, art, architecture, and creative journalism. A hallmark of this distinguished event, the black-tie gala has garnered widespread acclaim for its unwavering commitment to recognizing excellence and innovation on a global scale. Esteemed by peers and professionals alike, the gala stands as a beacon of distinction within the creative and design community, symbolizing the pinnacle of achievement while fostering meaningful connections and dialogue among the industry’s finest talents.
