Piero Fornasetti

Italian, 1913 - 1988
A singular designer, craftsman, poet and marvelous draftsman. Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) stands apart in the world of Italian design as one of the most prolific decorative artists of the twentieth century. Mixing both art & craft, his rich work is the fruit of an unbounded imagination and a real virtuosity at telling stories through furniture, objects and decoration. The diversity of his surreal motifs, many of them tromp l'oeils, are living proof of a very special and fantastic talent, founded in the key virtues of precision, humor and elegance. fornasetti's inventive magic allowed him to blend imagery extravagance with peerless craftsmanship, to mix techniques and materials with supreme liberty, and thus produce a unique body of work.
