Architettura - Candle 10.5oz

'Architettura' and ‘Palazzo’ are architectural neoclassical trompe-l'œil decors, inspired by Palladio and are iconic Fornasetti designs. These decors were first designed in the 50's for cylindrical objects like the waste paper baskets and then elongated for umbrella stands. The 'architettura’ lid is in style with the roof typical of the period style. the 'Palazzo' lid has a geometric-fish scale decor taken from the ‘egocentrismo’ dinner plate collection that recalls another type of roof.

'Otto' is the signature scent that was created by the master perfumer Olivier Polge, working in close collaboration with Barnaba. He captured the essence of Fornasetti by exploring the olfactory character of the family house and gardens, registering significant herbs and the woods of the interior. In the final scent, notes of thyme, lavender, orris and cedarwood evoke the personal environment, while ethereal incense notes at the base interpret the dream-like dimension of Fornasetti's graphic poetry.
