Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin

Italian designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin make up Amsterdam-based studio Formafantasma.

Trimarchi and Farresin met while studying in Florence. They later studied a masters degree at Design Academy Eindhoven, setting up Formafantasma after graduating in 2009.

The studio explores issues such as the relationship between tradition and local culture, the significance of objects as cultural conduits, and adopts critical approaches to sustainability.

Their work has been acquired by numerous museums including the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the  Metropolitan Museum in New York, and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. They were listed as one of the 500 most newsworthy forces in world design in the 2017 Dezeen Hot List.
