Nomad St. Moritz
Chesa Planta
St. Moritz
Switzerland

From 6 to 9 February Fornasetti is taking part to Nomad St. Moritz, the showcase by invitation dedicated to collectible design and contemporary art that brings together international galleries in extraordinary architectural locations all over the world.


In the spaces of Chesa Planta, a historic building of the eighteenth century, the Milanese Atelier presents Fornasetti, Origins: a new limited edition of pieces of furniture among which stand out the Libri Trumò and two new pieces from the Litomatrice series.

The Trumò Libri is the prototype of a series of five limited reissues designed on the 1950 model, one of the first examples of collaboration between Gio Ponti and Piero Fornasetti. Predecessor to the iconic pieces still being produced today, its components in Italian walnut-briar with a vintage taste converse with the elegant black and white decorations applied by hand in line with the Atelier’s tradition.


The matrices used by Piero Fornasetti in the early years to print his decorations come back to life in the Litomatrice collection. Based on an idea by Barnaba Fornasetti, the series enhances the precious archival masters turning them into decorative elements that testify the Atelier’s history and creating a limited number of unique pieces of art.
