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.
Fornasetti Profumi introduces a new collection of Incense Boxes featuring its second scent Flora di Fornasetti. They are available in three iconic designs: Flora, Fior di Bacio, Ortensia. The "Ortensia" design is another popular "Tema e Variazioni" (Theme & Variations) re-working of the iconic face of Lina Cavalieri.The face of Lina peeps out at the viewer from behind "Ortensia" flowers based upon the abundant hydrangea bushes that grow in the garden that surrounds the Fornasetti house in Milan.
