Opulence Design Concept, the exclusive Philippine distributor of luxury European home décor brands, has embarked on a groundbreaking collaboration between the iconic brand Fornasetti and the internationally acclaimed fashion and celebrity icon, Heart Evangelista.
Casa Fornasetti, an enchanting house museum in Milan, played a central role in this remarkable partnership, showcased through a teaser video on Heart’s Instagram account.
Casa Fornasetti, a 19th-century mansion in Milan’s Città Studi, was Piero Fornasetti’s creative haven. In the 1940s, he established an atelier at Casa Fornasetti, giving birth to the Fornasetti design firm. Today, Piero’s son, Barnaba Fornasetti, manages the brand and the grand house museum, which houses a collection of 13,000 objects, including ceramics, wall coverings, upholstery fabric, and carpets, all adorned with the distinctive Fornasetti touch.
Opulence Design Concept, Heart, and Barnaba Fornasetti converged at this artistic sanctuary to craft a groundbreaking chapter in an opulent design. This collaboration is Fornasetti’s first international partnership with a celebrity and the first time a shoot took place at the Fornasetti family’s grand house museum.
The teaser video features Heart gracefully exploring Casa Fornasetti, revealing the enchanting courtyard garden, the living room, the ‘Gerusalemme’ wallpaper-adorned staircase, and her interaction with iconic Fornasetti porcelain pieces.
In her Instagram caption, Heart described Casa Fornasetti as “a magical place where imagination meets design” and hinted at more details about the collaboration soon.
Fornasetti, Opulence Design Concept, and Heart are working on an exciting project for the upcoming holiday season. Gerry Sy, the Owner of Opulence Design Concept, expressed their honor in this collaboration, emphasizing their commitment to bringing Italian design excellence to the Philippines.
Opulence Design Concept exclusively distributes Fornasetti products in the Philippines, featuring surreal motifs, including porcelain plates with opera singer Lina Cavalieri’s face.
This collaboration between Fornasetti, Opulence Design Concept, and Heart Evangelista promises to be a unique and special creative endeavor. To explore their collections, visit the Opulence Design Concept store in Ortigas Center, Metro Manila, or their website at www.opulencedesignconcept.com.
