Milan - Salone del Mobile: Fornasetti. The new Fornasetti table Grande Pesce was born as a custom-made request for the villa of a client in Portofino, the table “Grande Pesce” (big fish) is the newest re-invention by Barnaba Fornasetti. This decor is one of the several fish-based design by Piero Fornasetti, originally applied on a serving tray, and features a large sized fish with a curious smirk on his face, while he swims placid waters blossoming with abundant, colorful madrepores and sea flowers. The bright tints are ahomage to the 50’s, while the organic shape of the table base turns this new creation into an eulogy to the marine world.
