'Fior di Bacio - Flora' Lidded Candle
Italian painter, sculptor and engraver Piero Fornasetti considered most objects a canvas. From umbrella stands to side tables to decorative trays, the legendary Italian artist and designer put his signature whimsical mark on over 11,000 objects. The Fornasetti legacy continues today with his son Barnaba, who reinterprets the world famous motifs onto a collection of scented decorative objects.
The Fior di Bacio candle design is a classic dual-faced reworking of the iconic lips of Lina Cavalieri—an Italian opera singer and the most frequently appearing muse of Piero Fornasetti—now with a floral twist. Fior di Bacio is both a figurative expression meaning "flowers in the mouth," as well as play on words meaning "the best of kisses." The candle is made from hand-poured, 100% vegetal wax and fills your home the warm scent of Flora. Once your candle has burned away, the jar can be used as decoration.
