Details

Famed as one of the most creative talents of the 20th century, Piero Fornasetti produced some 11,000 products in his lifetime. Now at the helm of the atelier, his son Barnaba has revived the visual vocabulary and continues to follow the same craftsmanship and attention to detail across all decorative wares and furniture.

Combining a legacy of iconic ceramics with striking home fragrance, these scented candles are re-inventions of the Fornasetti signature for the modern home and are based on archived imagery.

Created by Barnaba and legendary perfumer Olivier Polfe, the fragrance is inspired by the Mediterranean herbs found in and around the Fornasetti home in Milan. 'Otto' conjures up a poetic spirituality with notes of thyme, lavender and cedarwood.

Available in five ceramic designs.

Burns for 50-60 hours.

Fornasetti

Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) was an Italian painter, sculptor, interior decorator, engraver of books and a creator of more than 13,000 products. In terms of variety of decoration, Fornasetti’s production of objects and furniture is one of the largest of the 20th century.

 

He lived most of life in Milan, attending the Brera Art Academy from 1930-1932 when he was expelled for insubordination. Fornasetti is celebrated as being among the most original and creative talents of the 20th century. During his career he created a visual vocabulary that is instantly recognisable and unceasingly engaging. Fornasetti designed a magical world, saturated in image and colour and filled with whimsy and wit. Today it is most common to see Fornasetti's style emblazoned on fashion and home accessories such as scarves, candles and tableware.

 

Today his son, Barnaba Fornasetti, continues to design in his father's name.
