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.
Pistole Nero’ is new re-working of a classic Fornasetti repeat motif in black and gold. ‘Weapons used only as decorative objects’ – the overriding purpose of this design is to visually relegate weaponry to the purely two-dimensional in order to represent them as part of a past civilization and consigned to the history books. The bullets on the lid have been added to add strength to the irony of this decor.
