I absolutely LOVE Fornasetti's "Tema e Variozioni" (Themes & Variations) range. I have been raving about it for the longest time, so I've decided to share my love with my blog post today. :)
Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988), an iconic Italian designer was one of those designers that possess the ability to transform a space through his unique, engaging pieces. An inspired painter originally, he was known for his ability to use unconventional medium to deliver his art and design: from chairs, decorative screens, wallpaper to scarves & umbrella stands.
'Tema e Variozioni', the most iconic of his range was a great example of how the face of a classical beauty such as Lina Cavieleri was transformed into timeless design through imaginative exploration of style & poses. The 'variozani' graphics created are often intriguing because of the quirky & whimsical feel of the design.
Piero Fornasetti believed that true art will withstand time & period, and it is true. 'Tema e Variozoni' is both classic & modern at the same time. It has withstood the test of time & the most recent collaboration with Bitossi for 'Tema e Variozioni' is definitely showing that Fornasetti enthusiast are hungry for more.
