Chez Ernesto Esposito à Rome, de Jean Prouvé à Alighiero Boetti

Charlotte Perriand and Jean Prouvé : An Iconic Duo

Ernesto Esposito is not only a well-known luxury shoe designer, but also a renowned collector of contemporary art and 20th-century furniture. Known for his designs created for Sergio Rossi, Marc Jacobs and Fendi, Mr. Esposito is an equally dedicated art collector. His magnificent Neapolitan collection is a vibrant tribute to design from the 1950s to the 1980s. From Jean Prouvé to Alighiero Boetti, the collection has been tastefully constructed around an idea of harmony. Marked by colorful accents and free use of material, the collection’s 1980s pieces include artworks from the Milanese Memphis group, featuring artists such as Ettore Sottsass, Nathalie du Pasquier and Michele De Lucchi.
