News & Events
1913 to 2013 represents a century of history, from the birth of Piero Fornasetti to the present day.
On the occasion of the Salone del Mobile, Piero’s son, Barnaba, introduces some iconic pieces of furniture from the Fornasetti imagination and adds to these, as is customary for this period of the year, with one of his reinventions, a contemporary vision that embellishes Fornasetti’s vast and eclectic world.
During the event the new oval table “Peccato originale” and the new side cabinet “Buffet Frutto del peccato” will be presented, both Barnaba Fornasetti’s re-invention that are the result of a search for an increasingly distant paradise.
Both pieces will be framed by a setting with certain embellishments from the new FORNASETTI II wallpaper collection by Cole and Son.
To celebrate the centenary, Fornasetti Store will be hosting a special series of exhibits of its own creations throughout the entire period.
