Ramo di Ortensia
The 'Ortensie' design is based upon the abundant hydrangea bushes that grow in the garden that surrounds the Fornasetti house in Milan. Piero Fornasetti created this design in the 50s applying it to numerous tables and trays.
The idea to use hydrangea leaves came to Piero thanks to his son Barnaba. At 3 years old he brought one of the plant's leaves with a small daisy on it from the family garden as a gift for his father. The design captures the lush sprawling trails of this blousy plant and its redolent summer fragrance.
