Fornasetti used shells to cover the walls of his Lake Como villa dining room, as a mid-century interpretation of a sixteenth-century grotto. The room also featured a delicate shell ceiling lamp made by Giulia, Piero's wife.
This motif can be seen across many of the atelier's pieces from headscarves and vases to trays, mirrors, and tables; Fornasetti inspiration knows no creative bounds.
Forming a geometric repeat of shell-laden boxes and diamonds, Conchiglie is full of exquisite detail, providing new inspiration every time the design is viewed.
