One of the 20th century’s most prolific designers is being rediscovered by a whole new generation. Piero Fornasetti was famous for his almost fanatical use of opera singer Lina Cavalieri’s image and created more than 13,000 products in his lifetime. The Fornasetti design house is now run by his son, Barnaba, and is putting out new designs every year, including this somewhat surrealistic clock ($70), available at Madison & Page. Cavalieri’s sweet face and rosebud lips are a charming and inspiring subject for these eye-catching timepieces.
