Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer of books. His creative output, handed down and reinterpreted today by his son, is composed of a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable. Fornasetti conveys a sense of the poetic and magical through its depiction of a dream world filled with whimsical humour.
The Architecttura candle features an architectural classical trompe-l'œil decor. This decor was first designed in the 50's for cylindrical objects like the waste paper baskets. The lid is in the style of a terracotta tile roof.
‘Otto’, the signature scent of the Fornasetti Profumi collection, is sophisticated and unique; transcending time, season, gender and borders. Created by master perfumer Olivier Polge it makes use of ingredients that are of personal significance to Barnaba - Mediterranean herbs that were found in and around the family home, woods often utilised in interiors designs or pieces of furniture created by Fornasetti. Other more ethereal ingredients - such as incense - conjure a latent spirituality or sense of dreamscape that is often present in Fornasetti graphic poetry.
