A series of clocks track the progress of different time intervals with each timepiece considering the passage of time using the singular qualities of precious materials. The designers intend to bring the viewer’s perception of time, place and object together in both a physical and imaginary space. Formafantasma, Italian design duo Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, produce works and installations that record the significance of objects as cultural conduits from their Amsterdam based studio. They identify their role as the bridge between craft, industry, object, and user and seek to stimulate a more critical and conceptual design dialogue through their work.

Andrea Trimarchi (1983) and Simone Farresin (1980) are Studio Formafantasma, an Italian designers duo based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Their interest in product design developed on the IM master course at Design Academy Eindhoven, where they graduated in July 2009. Since then, Formafantasma has developed a coherent body of work characterised by experimental material investigations and explored issues such as the relationship between tradition and local culture, critical approaches to sustainability and the significance of objects as cultural conduits.
