fornasettiPiero Fornasetti was born in 1913 and died in 1988. Working in Milan along such luminaries as Gio Ponti and the artist Giorgio de Chirico, his designs stand apart from the rational approach of the period. Piero Fornasetti created entire room settings,

from mundane domestic objects to textiles and furnishings. He is quoted that “I don’t believe in periods or in dates, I simply don’t believe in them. I refuse to determine the value of an object by its date. I don’t limit myself, and nothing is too esoteric to be used as inspiration. I want to free my inspiration from the limitations of the usual”.
