Availability: In stock
Piero Fornasetti was a Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and printer of books. His creative output, handed down and reinterpreted today by his son Barnaba, 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 ‘Fornasetti Profumi per la Casa’ collection brings this unique world to life through a selection of hand crafted and scented decorative objects.
Architettura Negativo ’ is an architectural classical trompe-l'oeil decor, inspired by a Roman amphitheatre and is a further iconic Fornasetti architectural design. 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 typical of the same period.
‘Otto’ - The Scent
The ‘Architettura Negativo’ scented candles feature ‘Otto’, the signature scent of the Fornasetti Profumi collection. The scent 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 Fornasetti - 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.
