IMG_7062

Painter, printer, film director, interior decorator and sculptor — Milanese artist and designer Piero Fornasetti’s prolific talent is currently on full display at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The retrospective, which features over 1000 objects curated by his son Barnaba Fornasetti, features his prodigious output of artwork and applied arts including furniture, coasters, screens, umbrella stands, trays, cabinets, chairs and china. With the architect Gio Ponti, Fornasetti designed complete interiors for homes, ocean liners, casinos, and also designed several covers of Domus. With a whimsical, surrealist and poetic style he described himself as ‘a stickler for detail who loves uncertainty.’
