GAETANO PESCE

Walker, Design by Ruth Mateus-Berr & Pia Scharler

Steel, Polyurethane

70.00x260.00x70.00

2024

GAETANO PESCE is a rollator inspired by the famous Gaetano Pesce chair: Mid-century UP 2000. Methodologically, it deals with vacuum packaging and the then new material polyurethane. In terms of content, it is dedicated to women's freedom "Women suffer because of the prejudice of men. The chair was supposed to talk about this problem" (Martin 2017)

and here the rollator is dedicated to the freedom for self-determination of people with dementia and is also intended to encourage people to talk about it.
