23/05/2023 - 'The syntax of making
' is the name of the three new Fornasetti home furnishing and accessory
collections, made with shapes and decorations that express the uniqueness of the Atelier's savoir faire. Traditional craft techniques and artistic language meet in the 'syntax of making' from which creations are born that transform the corners of the home into microcosms.'
"The value of making things by hand - explains
The craftsmanship of the brand's Atelier, protagonist of the installation inside the Fornasetti store, Salone del Mobile 2023
Barnaba Fornasetti, Fornasetti Artistic Director - has acquired a deep meaning for me over time. It goes beyond technique and the desire to preserve a firm and coherent identity. It is a choice and a way of being today, in our modern world, an ethical line that puts people and what they make at the centre of everything. Craftsmanship is a conscious way of working, fuelled by a dynamic creativity, which embodies the extraordinary capacity to continuously combine abstract knowledge and experience: what I like to call 'thinking with the hands'."
cabinets are characterised by their small dimensions and new shapes. Characterised by multiple facets that form a prism on which the colours and silver reflections of the decorations stand out, they are reminiscent of the surfaces of a precious stone. Wooden cabinets and bedside cabinets are characterised by their small dimensions and new shapes.
