FORNASETTI PRESENTS THE NEW COLLECTION “ARCHITETTURA CELESTE” FOR THE 2018 MILAN DESIGN WEEK

15 April 2018

Barnaba Fornasetti presents the new collection “Architettura Celeste” (celestial architecture) for the 2018 Milan Design Week. The new decoration is a reworking of the historic “Architettura” motif created by Piero Fornasetti in the Fifties. The colour sky-blue ("celeste” in Italian) enriches the black and white of the traditional motif that becomes more dreamlike.
The collection comprises a wide range of furniture and accessories, including the iconic trumeau, a screen, a cabinet and a corner cabinet, tables, chairs, mirrors and panels, in a perfect synthesis of art and craftsmanship.
On the occasion of the 2018 Milan Design Week the Fornasetti Store will be open from 16th to 22nd April from 10am to 9pm.More info about the collection at this link.
