Living Forms and Textures – An Exhibition of Furniture and Accents by Carlo Pessina at Four Seaonson's Ganesha Gallery in Bali.


(8/22/2011)

One of the most prolific, original and talented designers in Bali, Carlo Pessina is best known for his striking furniture and accessories featured in many of the island’s most prestigious hotels and homes. Born in Milan, a major centre of Italian design and style, Carlo first arrived in Bali in 1979 as a young artist in search of inspiration.

Blessed with an uncanny sense of the market and a supreme sense of style, he began creating a series of soft furnishings using Indonesian ikat fabrics that were an immediate success that also landed him a job as a design consultant for the Singapore Hyatt. In the process he realized his passion and ability to unite elegant sculptural forms and exotic textures to make “living” furniture. In 1982 he pioneered his first line of signature designs experimenting with a wide range of materials - coconut wood, seashells and terrazzo – rarely associated with furniture.

Three decades later Carlo’s work is no less beautiful, important or fresh than when he first began. Remarkably, his talents received little acknowledgement in Bali outside of small circle of friends and international designers before he opened his own gallery in Sanur in 2003.

Today Carlo stands as first and foremost among a small handful of truly original world-class design artists living and working on Bali. The integrity of his work is based not only on their functionality but more so as living, evolving works of art that enhance space and create a balance between nature and man, artist-creator and art lover-users. His creations are a celebration of the best of Bali and the island’s supreme ability to nurture and sustain both local and expatriate artists.

This exhibition is designed not only to present Carlo as an artist but also as a mini-retrospective of his artistic career. It consists not only of his more sculptural pieces within the gallery but also a series of “installations” set up within the grounds of the Four Seasons Bali Resort at Jimbaran Bay.
