In all subjects. Piero Fornasetti tried his hand at all that exist. Creating, hijacking, retouching whatever he could. Designer furniture, creator of interior decorations, ceramics, silk scarves and ready-to-wear accessories ... The range of products declined by Fornasetti is as long as an inventory à la Prévert, humor included.
Maison Fornasetti is based in Milan where the company was founded and designed by the artist himself as an Atelier for the production of his initial works. A place where the Maestro could work side by side with the craftsmen to create consistency between the decorations and the design of the objects. His first store opened in Milan in 1992, but his creations went around the world, most recognizable. Over the decades, the Atelier has retained full control over the production of all Fornasetti parts, ensuring the quality of the range. After the death of Piero Fornasetti, his son Barnaba took over the management of the House, where he oversees the development of the entire creation and production chain. The Atelier also houses the Fornasetti Archives, a vast collection of all of Piero Fornasetti's original creations, collected over his fifty-year career. The Archives today provide an inexhaustible source of visuals that are used to create new collections.
Fornasetti has collaborated with many designers and luxury brands to create unique lines and exclusive editions: notably with Philippe Stark, Giò Ponti, Bardelli Ceramiche, Xilo 1934, United Perfumes, Cole & Son, Bitossi Ceramiche and Nigel Coates.
LECLAIREUR is honored to welcome within its walls the largest collection of Fornasetti pieces in the world, combining rigor, imagination and an almost mystical sense of humor.
