100 anni di follia pratica

On the occasion of the centenary of Piero Fornasetti’s birth, the Triennale Design Museum presents a first grand and unprecedented exhibition of the artist’s work, curated by Barnaba Fornasetti.
Triennale Design Museum chose to pay tribute to Fornasetti to underscore the artist’s role and propose a new and more correct reading of his work in the context of the critical and theoretical debate on ornament as a structural element of project.
The exhibition’s path walks through the artist’s start as a painter in the spirit of Novecento, his artist’s books printing workshop, his tight collaboration with Gio Ponti in the 1950s and 1060s and the harder 1970s until 1988, the year of Fornasetti’s death, and covers a long period overawed on the whole by the ruling rationalist dogma of functionality in architecture and design, which confined Fornasetti to a marginal role, but still could not stifle his volcanic creativity.
The exhibition includes more than 700 pieces, mostly from the extraordinary Fornasetti archive in Milan, curated by Barnaba Fornasetti, who still carries on his father’s work.

news salone 2013

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.
