Italian designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin together form Studio Formafantasma. Based in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, their work explores the role of design in folk craft, relationships between tradition and local culture, critical approaches to sustainability and the significance of objects as cultural conduits. Published to coincide with an exhibition of the studio’s work, this attractive and seemingly tactile monograph touches upon all aspects of their remarkably hybrid aesthetic and simple objective beauty, featuring more than 150 photos of their work, plus original essays by Alice Rawsthorn, Marco Petroni, Fredic Baas, Lidewij Edelkoort, Libby Sellers and others.
