Curved Chest of Drawers SCIMMIE
The shape of the furniture with its 3 drawers is one of the icons in the Fornasetti collection. Newly created in 2018, however, is the decor. Barnaba Fornasetti created a new collage from existing elements of his father.
In the gray forest of leaves (the foliage first appeared in the 1950s for a similar piece of furniture) sits a horde of monkeys that were originally part of a decoration that Piero Fornasetti designed for a Milan patisserie in the 1960s.
For the first time, the handles and feet of the furniture are not made of brass, but of chrome-plated metal, which supports the cooler color of the decor.
To this day, furnishings are crafted, decorated and painted by hand in the Fornasetti studios.
