Step into Fornasetti’s world of whimsy and you’ll find a multitude of expressive, eccentric trays. Guided by everything from portraits to architecture, the designs are painted, silk-screened and lacquered by hand. The Uccelli wood tray is inspired by ancient encyclopaedias in its depiction of colourful birds. To convert this tray into an animated side table, team it with one of Fornasetti's stands or holders.

Fornasetti

The Milanese design atelier renowned for the design and decoration of timeless pieces was founded in the 1940s by Piero Fornasetti, a multi-disciplinary artist who created over 13,000 objects in his lifetime. Barnaba, his son continues the design legacy which defies categorisation: Fornasetti is at once imaginative, ironic and sophisticated.

The result is a marriage of inspiration and functionality which is expressed in every day objects such as porcelain, accessories and furniture. Every piece is handmade in limited annual editions.
