The “Libri” credenza is the prototype of a limited series of 5 pieces. It is a re-edition of the first piece born from the collaboration between Gio Ponti and Piero Fornasetti in 1950.
This mix of sideboard, cocktail cabinet and drop-leaf writing bureau was one of the first pieces of furniture designed by the Fornasetti atelier, and is the predecessor to the iconic furniture still being produced today.
The Litomatrici obelisk-wall lamp and desk are two unique pieces, completely covered with original 1950s lithographic zinc plates. The plates, which belonged to Piero Fornasetti and which he used for printing, are transformed into unexpected and unrepeatable decorative materials by these original creations.
On show in Saint Moritz also a red screen with a musical instruments pattern. All furnitures were on display at Chesa Planta, an exquisite Alpine residence in Switzerland’s Engadin mountains.
Fornasetti is a historic Milanese design and decorative art atelier. It is the symbol of a culture of high-quality craftsmanship that is founded on art and design. Alongside the production of objects, it designs and produces cultural projects that represent a fundamental part of its values and identity.
