Architettura - Room Spray
Availability: Out of 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.
The image that adorns the Room Spray is ‘Architettura’. This architectural neoclassical ‘trompe-l’oeil décor’, is inspired by Palladio and is an iconic Fornasetti design. The décor was first designed in the 50’s for cylindrical objects like waste paper baskets and then elongated for umbrella stands. The ‘Architettura’ lid is in style with the roof typical of the period.
Scented with ‘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.
