Today I received a press release of one of the coolest Eye Candies we have ever published. I am always complaining about seeing the black screens on the flat tvs and so far the only decent solutions I have seen is to buy a mirror screen or even worse, the conventional tacky landscape animations. But this new soution is right up my alley.
I have been an admirer of Fornasetti for over 15 years, since my friend Isabel brought me a poster as a souvernir from Italy, since then I have collected plates and other Fornasetti paraphernalia. This Fornasetti limited edition collection of ambient wall art for modern interiors brings animated interpretations of Piero Fornasetti's iconic "Theme and Variations" containing 7 tracks of purely visual, decorative art for the contemporary canvas of the flat screen. This limited edition of 3,000 comes in a custom lacquer box and is accompanied by a hand numbered, engraved card. Detour Design is a New York based design company and worked with Barnaba Fornasetti to produce this first title of three in this limited edition collection.
If you are looking for a modern and classic solution for your tv screen or computer screen here is the coolest solution ever.

New York, New York (December 11, 2008) - Detour Design announces the release of the first title in a limited edition Fornasetti collection “Theme and Variations”, animated interpretations of the work of Italian artist Piero Fornasetti. This high definition Blu-ray disc is the first in a series of three titles and is comprised of imagery from Fornasetti’s “Theme and Variations” - the iconic and enigmatic woman’s face. These slow moving, purely visual animations move through variations in hypnotic homage to his superb sense of fantasy and illusion. In collaboration with Barnaba Fornasetti, Piero Fornasetti’s son, Detour Design used many of the over 500 images in the series to create this title. Housed in an elegant custom lacquer box with a signature Fornasetti image gracing the lid, each Blu-ray disc in this limited edition of 3,000 is accompanied by a hand numbered engraved card. Designed as an object to be on display, it is available in select retail stores and online at www.fornasettimoves.com
