Founded by two Italian designers, Andrea Trimarchi (1983) and Simone Farresin (1980), Formafantasma is based in Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Formafantasma’s work explores the role of design in folk craft, the relationship between tradition and local culture, critical approaches to sustainability and the significance of objects as cultural conduits.
They identify their role as a bridge between craft, industry, object and user and seek, through their work, to stimulate a more critical and design dialogue. Their project ‘Botanica’ has been acquired in the permanent collection of the MoMA in New York.
