Bracelet, 2009

This is a Bracelet. It is dated 2009 and we acquired it in 2016. Its medium is polyurethane resin. It is a part of the Product Design and Decorative Arts department.

Industrial designer, Gaetano Pesce, has explored the use of resin for objects ranging from furniture to vessels. For this bracelet Pesce uses transparent, colored resin to create the illusion of amber. While looking bulky and heavy, the material is soft and comfortable to wear and offers an element of surprise and delight.

This object was donated by Susan Lewin. It is credited The Susan Grant Lewin Collection, Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum.
