- thanks to Busy Being Fabulous for the tip.
Studio Formafantasma is based in Eindhoven, The Netherlands and was started by product designers Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin who met while still at school and collaborated on their masters thesis project at the Design Academy of Eindhoven. Their combined love for classic craftsmanship has lead them to analyze and re-evaluate the relationship between “local cultures and global contexts”, to translating those crafts into industrial processes.
