Loved: Bruno Billio + Gaetano Pesce

We love this sculpture by Toronto artist Bruno Billio.  It’s made from a carpet and 2 pairs of old Adidas Samba trainers.  It’s very suggestive, it’s funny, it’s sculptural and it’s simple.  We love how Billio is always re-thinking the most common materials.

Only an Italian would have made it.

Billio’s piece reminds us of work our design hero, Gaetano Pesce.
