The Italian painter, sculptor, craftsman, and decorator Piero Fornasetti cultivated a highly original style throughout his career. Awe-struck by the past greatness of Italian art, Piero Fornasetti developed an eclectic style, not confining himself, however, to the motifs of the Novecento style, which was inspired by Neo-Classicism. Instead, Piero Fornasetti also used Early Renaissance ornamental and pictorial motifs to decorate silk scarves, furniture, porcelain plates, vessels, and other similar objects. Piero Fornasetti's signature was the Lina Cavalieri's face, he used to decorate the "Tema e Variazioni" series. In 1970 Piero Fornasetti opened a shop of his own in Milan, where connoisseurs of his playful and imaginative designs can still buy them. In the 1980s, Piero Fornasetti's work was enormously popular with Postmodern designers.View collection

Born in 1931 in Cote d’Azur, Francois Thevenin is an exceptional architect, sculptor, and furniture-designer who has worked primarily in metal and wood. His furniture bears the indelible mark of his hand, and calls into question the traditional divisions between the functional or decorative, and the fine arts.Thevenin has always been profoundly influenced by the natural landscape of France. His work, which emphasizes an organic aesthetic, reflects the values of “the house landscape” movement that he co-founded with architect Jacques Couelle, with whom he has collaborated with closely throughout his career. The philosophy of the movement, which seeks a synchronicity between natural and human-built environments, has resulted in the twisted, branch-like metal work and organic, irregular shapes of Thevenin’s designs.View collection

Hans J. Wegner

Harvey Probber (1922- 2003) American furniture designer who is credited with inventing sectional, modular seating in the 1940s. As a self-trained designer, Probber was never wed to any particular aesthetic. He preferred simple lines for their inherent practicality, but often used hardware to enliven the look of his pieces. He gravitated toward bright fabrics with attractive, touchable textures that might be satin-like or nubbly. Above all, Probber insisted that the products that came out of his Fall River, Massachusetts, factory be built to last. “The quality of aging gracefully,” Probber once told an interviewer, is “design's fourth dimension.” This quality he realized: Probber furniture is just as useful and alluring now as it was when made — and maybe even more stylish.View collection
Born in Jamaica and educated in New York, Hugh Findletar moved to Italy 23 years ago where he quickly and forever fell in love with Murano and its glass blowers. Photographer by trade with a particular interest in portraiture and being a florist as he jokingly defines himself, he worked for seven years before introducing the world and our tables to his flamboyant “Flowerheadz”. The roots of this project lie deep into his love for eternal endurance (glass being the only material to offer this to humanity) and his influences: Ancient Greece, Eritrea and banquet cups from the Roman Empire. Each head has its own character, and they are real personalities — each has a name (Tess, Chris, Tyron, Agnes and Hugh) and they all assume their Baroque essence.

Pierre Jeanneret was a visionary of modernist architecture and designer. He pioneered a new aesthetic vocabulary that placed function and order over embellishment—Jeanneret’s work imbuing the strict geometry of modernism with energetic diagonals and lighter materials like cane and wood. In the early 1950s Jeanneret joined his cousin, renown architect LeCorbusier, in Chandigarh, India, where they embarked on a massive urban-planning project, laying out the city and designing buildings and furniture. Though Corbusier abandoned the project halfway through, Jeanneret remained for 15 years as the project’s chief architect. The city remains a masterpiece of the modern vision.View collection
