Our friends at Poliform are currently showcasing their Arflex limited edition collection of 6 pieces featuring Fornasetti designs made exclusively for their showroom floor.
With over 11,000 product designs to his name, Piero Fornasetti is one of the most prolific designers of the 20th century and is arguably most famous for producing over 500 versions of the face of 19th century soprano, Lina Cavalieri, who he first discovered in a magazine.
Influenced by the work of the Milanese painter, sculptor, decorator and engraver, Piero Fornasetti, Arflex has collaborated with local Fornasetti fabric supplier Boyac to produce a tight collection of six pieces curated by stylist Steve Cordony.
Established in 1947, Arflex has built a reputation as a furniture brand with a strong focus on research and experimentation which then merges with new technology and the brands aesthetic sensibilities in order to produce the final design outcome. In bringing together these two historic Italian design houses, Poliform has ensured a new appreciation of both the signature Arflex pieces and the historical creative references of the Fornasetti designs.
