Erastudio Apartment-Gallery presenting Gaetano Pesce

Erastudio Apartment-Gallery is a design gallery focusing exclusively on architectural and design works carried out by the most valued and renowned names of the Italian and International architectural scene of the twentieth and twenty-first century.

The gallery is purposely concealed in two private spaces, inside a historic building of the early twentieth century, located in the Brera Design District in Milan.

The first space is an apartment on the third floor and the other one is a building in the courtyard, on the ground floor: the former horse stables. The latter opened during the Fuorisalone 2012, with a site-specific design exhibition by Italian Architect Vincenzo De Cotiis, presenting prototypes and unique pieces exclusively conceived for Erastudio.

The apartment space has been brought back to its original charm after being restored under the supervision of owner Architect Patrizia Tenti. Its pared down walls become a unique scenario, which perfectly suits the works of the architects the gallery represents.

The former stables, the second location of Erastudio Apartment- Gallery, have not been refurbished in order to preserve their authentic look, and will be a temporal platform to be molded according to the philosophy of the works of the represented architects.

The project “America Table” by Architect Gaetano Pesce is a tribute to the United States of America. In fact this table, a unique piece, commemorates the figure Thomas Jefferson who wrote the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
