The ‘Maestà Soffrente’ (the chair’s original name) was made in 1969, and the original meaning behind Gaetano Pesce‘s modern design was the suffering of women and the disparity between sexes. Warsinksi’s contemporary art recreation wants to pass the same message as well as the objectification that women suffer from nowadays.

This art furniture‘s version of Gaetano Pesce is called ‘Nagababa’, which means ‘Naked Woman’ in Polish. It is a massive modern armchair but also the embodiment of the classic ideal of the female figure. This modern furniture was made by Warmhouse Studio to create some kind of awareness when it comes to today’s mass culture and its way of promoting the “ideal women body”.

The chair is adorned with embroidered arrows and large stitching to resemble a plastic surgeon’s sketches on a patient’s body, indicating which areas to nip and tuck. The message behind this version of Gaetano Pesce is that the industry objectifies women’s bodies so much that it’s almost like they become objects, or in this case, a piece of modern furniture.
