History of designer: Piero Fornasetti was an Italian-born artist, illustrator and furniture maker. He attended the Brera Art Academy in Italy but was asked to leave after just 2 years due to his insubordination. He was exiled in Switzerland during the Second World War. During that time, he focused on producing furniture. He is reported to have produced more than 11,000 items during that time.
He often crafted one image in many variations. One of his most famous works is a woman’s face which was based on a 19th-century opera singer called Lina Cavalieri. He prepared transfer prints of these images and then rendered them in the style of engravings. He used these to adorn and embellish a multitude of different furniture pieces ranging from chairs and lamps to dishes and umbrella stands.
