SOLI A CAPRI GREY - Bisazza Mosaic Fornasetti Collection

A unique collaboration between Fornasetti and Bisazza.

Internationally renowned for its imaginative, ironic visual language, the Atelier Fornasetti’s distinctive furniture and accessory designs form the inspiration for a new series of four Bisazza mosaic patterns.

This meeting of the minds between two Italian design masters takes apart and reassembles Fornasetti’s “practical madness.” Exploring new surfaces, lavish proportions and remarkable reflections of light, Fornasetti’s unique magic is recreated and enhanced by the brilliance and transparency of glass mosaic in a blend of sixty shades of colour and texture.

The Bisazza mosaic decorations reproduce some of the most iconic Fornasetti images for the first time in such a large format. The Ortensia, Bocca, Serratura and Soli a Capri patterns make a spectacular statement in any living space, creating a sophisticated setting with bold personality.

The mouth, the hypnotic gaze seen through a keyhole, the enigmatic face of Piero Fornasetti’s muse, opera singer Lina Cavalieri and the sun are the stars of this collection. In the Ortensia pattern, Lina Cavalieri seems to peer meekly from an explosion of pink and blue petals. In Soli a Capri, a compilation of brilliant suns whimsically portrays the face of Piero Fornasetti, lighting up the background in shades of blue or grey.

The magic, humour, metaphors and sophistication of the Fornasetti compositions are perfectly portrayed in the new Bisazza décors – expressions of that amalgam of art, design and luxury, which has long distinguished the style and virtuosity of the two Italian brands.

“We are thrilled to announce this partnership with Fornasetti, a brand we have long admired and that, under the leadership of Barnaba Fornasetti, is a true ambassador of Italian excellence in the world.
I believe the collection we are launching in Milan reflects the aesthetic and cultural values that characterise our two brands – both established in the 1950s, one by a great creative talent like Piero Fornasetti, the other by an enlightened entrepreneur like my father, Renato.”
Rossella Bisazza.

“In recent years, I have guided Fornasetti toward greater experimentation, exploring new areas, new surfaces, nudging the atelier to look outside the strict boundaries of design.
This initial partnership with Bisazza is a tangible sign of a desire and esteem that I have nurtured for many years. Shared conversations and contemplations led to the launch of a collection that is more than just the sum of our distinctive traits. Luminosity permeates the graphic hallmark and clean lines of the signature Fornasetti style. The designs delve deeper into innovative inflections of light.”
Barnaba Fornasetti.
