I want this!



"…when I’m lost or just plain lazy, when I really don’t know or my mind draws a blank, there is always my “Fornasetti secret formula” to get me going. Every object by Fornasetti, for example the teapot with eyes, which I have in my kitchen (and that I love), is an open door through which one is immediately sucked, like in Alice in Wonderland. And for me that’s something you can’t put a price on. Even after twenty years on the shelf, the teapot is a door that still opens. The magic still works. A Fornasetti object has the power to change vibrations in a place, not because it’s a handsome decorative object – it’s nothing to do with that. You can be in a very handsome room, very well-decorated, with a really beautiful design, for all that it is still a room grounded in real life. But put a Fornasetti in it and it takes on a very different dimension, the dimension of dream."
