Here are some stunning and unusual objects for you to feast your eyes over, and if you dig deep enough into your pockets (they’d have to be pretty deep mind you), you could own a piece for yourself. The new range of limited edition Fornasetti objects by Bitossi have touched down in Enzed and were conceived by Barnaba Fornasetti, the son of Milanese painter, sculptor, interior decorator and engraver of books - Piero Fornasetti.
Piero Fornasetti once said: “It is said that my pieces are created using secret methods… I laugh up my sleeve… my only real secret is the rigor with which I work.”
Barnaba continues his father’s legacy of design with these works. Here’s a tiny taster for you...
