Fornasetti

Fornasetti is by far one of my favorite designers of plates and furnishings. Sculptor and painter Piero Fornasetti lived mostly in Milan and created an astonishing 11,000 items during his lifetime.

His plate designs are probably the most famous part of the Fornasetti empire. Nearly all of them have an eerily similar appearance. The face featured on most of the designs belonged to an opera singer named Lina Cavalieri. Fornasetti reportedly found her face in a 19th century magazine and used variations of it on over 350 plate designs!

You can find out more about Fornasetti on the official website and purchase items on Moss Online, Unica Home and Couture Lab.
