Fish appear as motifs in some of Piero Fornasetti’s earliest work – such as luxurious silk scarves, trays and decorative porcelain – having been fascinated by the dichotomy of marine life’s simple aspect hiding a fascinating, mysterious nature within the depths of the ‘aquarium’. The whimsical composition and scale of Acquario creates a unique and striking wallcovering, whilst the colour palettes retain a Fornasetti classicism in tones of Ink, Seafoam, and Soot with Taupe providing a muted alternative.
From the miraculous and detailed hand of Fornasetti, combined with the skilled craftsmanship and artistry of the Cole & Son design studio comes this enduring collection of fanciful wallpapers where time and brilliance have no bounds. Showcasing the intricacies and reoccurring curiosities of the artist’s fascination, the collection captures the wit, originality and boundless realm of Fornasetti’s visual language: from fantastical flying machines and mischievous monkeys, to classical architecture and the surreal appeal of everyday objects.
Delve into Fornasetti’s unique and dreamlike world, where elegance and irony are perfectly combined in timeless (Senza Tempo), authentic artworks.
