Inspired by the image of an enigmatic beauty found in an old French magazine, Italian artist, Piero Fornasetti, reproduced her image in black and white into contemporary every day objects such as plates and trays. Over the years, Fronasetti’s incorporated surrealistic themes with elegance and humor, which is the reason why his work has remained ever so popular. The Fornasetti production process continues to be characterized by traditional craftsmanship, as each piece is created by hand in the Milan-based atelier. This family -run design company is now lead by the artist’s son, Barnaba Fornasetti who continues to create new designs in his father’s eclectic style.
Maison La Vallette gives homage to this great artist who is still a source of inspiration to this day.
