This model is very rare, it is in fact the sought-after multicolored “Farfalle” motif on a black background.

I want to free my inspiration from the borders of the usual. This is a craze that I fight, that of labels. Surrealist, neorealist, romantic, postmodern. We have the habit of buying the ‘signatures’ and no longer the beautiful things we really like. An artist who wants to be successful is no longer an artist. He is a person who wants to succeed. If he adapts to the fashions he arrives late, because by now everyone has adjusted. So maybe the idea is not to adapt, but to be original “(Piero Fornasetti)

I think that this quote contains the whole world of this unique artist in the international cultural panorama of the ‘900.

Recognizable among all, his unparalleled style is conquering the world of contemporary furniture. Absolute icon, the art of Piero Fornasetti is now present in any environment created by the most internationally renowned architects and designers.

The lamps created by the brilliant Italian designer in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, have recently become very rare as they are in great demand on the international market, especially American and Anglo-Saxon.
