Wait and See.  For the Salone del Mobile, the concept store Wait and See and Traslochi Emotivi announced the finding of an antique collection of perfume bottles belonging to a divinely elegant and eccentric collector. During this occasion “E’ Senza” (without scent), was launched: a fragrance stemming from the notes found in the diaries of the collector, an ensemble of rare essences dating back to the origins of the history of perfume.

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.

The effectiveness of the project, be it declined in flooring, lamp, cabinet or a piece of furniture, is seen on the skin of each object. Each item brings to the surface its nature, through tactile feedback and visual rhythms that havoc the rules.
