Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator of more than 11,000 products. In terms of decorative output, Fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the most prolific of the 20th century.
Fornasetti is celebrated as being one of the most original creative talents of the last century. During his long career he perfected his art and made use of a rich visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable and constantly engages. Fornasetti designed a magical dream world, saturated in richness of imagery and filled with whimsical humour.
Fornasetti’s son, Barnaba, has continued the family tradition for the past twenty years by maintaining in-house production, reviving as well as reinterpreting his father’s designs and paying meticulous attention to detail. At the helm of the company and its creative heart, Barnaba is the custodian of a rich inheritance.
Barnaba Fornasetti has turned his attention towards the notion of home fragrance in combination with decorative objects.
Fornasetti Profumi per La Casa celebrates the Fornasetti ceramic heritage in combination with both well-known and less familiar decorative images. Together they make up a desirable group of iconic objects and decorative pieces that are at once collectable and covetous.
Fornasetti has taken a new step in home fragrance, one that transcends the obvious and transforms it into the truly magical. Architectural details, whimsical facial expressions, hands, guns, owls, key holes and monkeys all vie with one another to capture the imagination and open the realm of dreams.
The collection encompasses various home scenting devices from the ubiquitous scented candle through to boxed incense sticks and ceramic globe diffusers for incense, perfumed oil or scented crystals. Each object has a clearly defined purpose and can be re-used, given an alternative use, or added to a Fornasetti collection.
