DE­SIGNER OF THE YEAR FORMAFANTASMA

ELLE Decoration (UK) - - Elle Deco -

An­drea Tri­marchi and Si­mone Far­resin – the Ital­ian-born, Am­s­ter­dam-based duo that make up Formafantasma – are lead­ing the de­sign pack. Their pas­sion is trans­lat­ing a love of craft into pieces that blend artistry with in­dus­try. At last year’s Mi­lan Fur­ni­ture Fair, their de­signs were un­for­get­table. Among them were the ‘Blush Lamp’ and ‘ Wirering’ lights cre­ated for Flos: the first ex­ploits the po­ten­tial of a dichroic fil­ter to project ‘ brush­strokes’ of coloured light onto the wall; the sec­ond is a lu­mi­nous cir­cle fixed to the wall by its elec­tric ca­ble – the func­tional made beau­ti­ful. Also wor­thy of note are the stu­dio’s ‘Cro­mat­ica’ tiles for Cedit Ceramiche d’italia. The range ex­plores how to recre­ate the va­ri­ety and sub­tlety of colour seen in tra­di­tional, ar­ti­san tiles (formafantasma.com).
