Italian painter, sculptor and engraver Piero Fornasetti considered most objects a canvas. From umbrella stands to side tables to decorative trays, the legendary Italian artist and designer put his signature whimsical mark on over 11,000 objects. The Fornasetti legacy continues today with his son Barnaba, who reinterprets the world famous motifs onto a collection of scented decorative objects.
The lips on the "Bacio" scented candle from Fornasetti Profumi are a radiant red – but you cannot immediately recognise to whom they belong. Barnaba Fornasetti knows the answer however: they are Lina Cavalieri’s lips, an opera singer, who his famous father Piero Fornasetti sketched over 500 times. Her mini portrait on the "Bacio" scented candle from Fornasetti Profumi is in an expressive black, white and red combination and its pixel-like appearance is reminiscent of Pop Art pictures. One humorous detail: the lid of the 16 cm pot is decorated with a "frill" of noses.
