Fornasetti is one of the most renowned names in design across the world today. A Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver, Piero Fornasetti the founder and namesake of this definitive brand was an unprecedented visionary whose work completely transformed the 20th century decorative art scene. He created over 13,000 products, and in terms of variety and diversity of decoration his production of objects and furniture is one of the largest collections of the 20th century.
Widely revered for his masterful application of two-dimensional art to three-dimensional form, he adapted his graphic illustrations into striking pieces of furniture, interiors, theatre sets, fashion, magazine covers and books, always retaining a sense of humour and poetry in the way he used his artwork on objects and spaces.
During his long and successful career he created a world of instantly recognisable and unceasingly engaging body of work. Fornasetti’s magical world of luxurious and creative design is carried on today by his son Barnaba, and has grown to encompass even more designs and products. Like his father, Barnaba has successfully combined true artistic vision with a traditional and deep rooted artisan approach. Each item to leave the Fornasetti atelier has been painstakingly handcrafted by skilled craftsmen and maestros, with no two items ever the same. This stunning approach spreads across the vast collection of products; each creating an individuality in any interior they are placed in.
A design icon, Barnaba Fornasetti is the figurehead of one of the most renowned and recognised design brands in the world. His late father Piero (1988) founded the Fornasetti empire and Barnaba has taken the baton on seamlessly. He continues to create objects, furniture and fashion items for the brand alongside being the Creative Director.
