Each copy of this gorgeous volume on the Italian chair designer comes with a unique cover in resin and canvas

Come Stai? is a new collectible artist's book commissioned by Bottega Veneta with Italian designer and architect Gaetano Pesce (born 1939) and Bottega Veneta's creative director, Matthieu Blazy. At the heart of the project is the Come Stai? chair, created for Bottega Veneta's Summer 2023 show in Milan, which echoes Pesce's lifelong quest for individuality and diversity. With an insightful interview between Pesce and Hans Ulrich Obrist, this limited-edition artist's book explores the ideation and process of the collaboration, uncovering many connections between Pesce and Blazy's creative practices and values. Contributions from Blazy and Maria Cristina Didero document the project's origins and place in Pesce's wider oeuvre, while photographs by Stephen Shore, Sander Muylaert and Matteo Canestraro illustrate the chair's development and production. The volume conveys the Come Stai? design with an atypical profile informed by the chair shape and a cover inspired by its resin and canvas materials. Like the chair itself, each book cover is unique.
