Fornasetti at Svenskt Tenn

Tuesday, 4 February 2014

Prolific Italian artist and designer Piero Fornasetti (1913-1988) is being celebrated in a special exhibition at interiors store Svenskt Tenn this week as part of Stockholm Design Week.

The exhibition includes an archive letter from Fornasetti to his friend Svenskt Tenn founder Estrid Ericson, alongside a selection of classic and contemporary pieces from the brand, styled into roomsets and table displays.

In 1946, Fornasetti produced the Stockholm Plate for Svenskt Tenn, decorated with a map by Josef Frank, and to this day the store is the only authorised dealer in Sweden (wallpaper and textiles excluded).
