The new Bisazza mosaics collection with the iconic Fornasetti decorations
From the partnership between Fornasetti and Bisazza, the leading Italian brand in the creation of glass mosaics for interior and exterior decoration, comes The Fornasetti Collection: a meticulous selection of five of the Atelier’s decorations embellished by the brilliance of Bisazza glass mosaic tiles to give any room a uniquely magical aura.
Reflecting Fornasetti’s continuous search for original applications of art, the Bisazza mosaic patterns give some of the Milanese Atelier’s most iconic figures a new expressive potency.
The opera singer Lina Cavalieri, Piero Fornasetti’s muse, timidly emerges from an explosion of pink and blue petals in the Ortensia decoration, while the Serratura and Bocca patterns accentuate her emblematic and intriguing persona.
The sun is another star of The Fornasetti Collection: in the Soli a Capri decoration, it turns into an ironic self-portrait of Piero Fornasetti’s face, illuminating a background in shades of blue or grey.
You can take a closer look at the mosaics at the Fornasetti Store at Corso Venezia 21A.
The Fornasetti Collection can be discovered in its entirety at the Bisazza Milano Flagship Store at via Solferino 22.
