Piero Fornasetti, 100th anniversary
Lover and beloved. Passionate. Energetic. Catchy. We could spend the next 3 minutes to combine adjectives to Piero Fornasetti art and creative projects, one of the most representative minds of the 20th century, celebrates its 100th anniversary of existence.
Taking the opportunity of Milan Design week 2013, was made to introduce some iconic pieces of furniture, whose seed came from the imaginative mind of Fornasetti, its contemporary vision graced the space with an eclectic touch.
Barnaba Fornasetti commitment for these days, is to maintain this legacy very active, showing how ideas and original models undergo a modification context, but also reinterpretations of themes and drawing objects inspired by the vast archive of lithographic plates, notes and other documents and objects.
During the event, the new oval table ‘peccato originale’ and the new cabinet “buffet frutto del peccato” are presented as Barnaba Fornasetti reinventions, result of a search for a paradise increasingly distant.
Barnaba Fornasetti created some collections of wallpaper, based on original designs by Piero Fornasetti, changing the color, dimensions and created rolls vertical / horizontal, most with the possibility of being combined together.
The Milanese gallery displays Fornasetti historical pieces, collaborations and new additions of Barnaba Fornasetti collaborations with other artists, such as those resulting from the chair collaboration with interior designer Anne Lux for a Swiss chalet in Gstaad.
