From the 1960s on, Pesce researched the function and form of utilitarian and decorative objects, including furniture, jewelry, and shoes, from the perspective of human emotion, environment, and production. Pesce is known for innovative high-minded modern design with wit and style. He explores materials that are generally little used in the world of design, such as fibreglass, polychlorinated vinyl, polyurethane and resine.
