Feature story

Cromatica

Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, two Italian designers based in Amsterdam, are the founders of the Formafantasma studio. Their studio has created a coherent body of work characterized by the experimental investigation of matter, exploring topics such as the relationship between tradition and local identity, the critical approach to sustainability, and the meaning of objects as devices for cultural relations.

The two creators of Formafantasma : Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin

With Cromatica, Formafantasma investigates fresh possibilities provided by the “colour factor” in contemporary ceramics manufacturing, while at the same time meeting the need to provide continuous spreads of covering, technically perfect but still offering the fascinating potential for compositions of individual pieces which are never monotonous.

Available in six encoded colours and two complementary surface finishes – matte and glossy – the “Cromatica” collection brings out a sensitive and original reflection in the domination of pure colour. The large porcelain stoneware glazed sheets are fields where the chromatic quotient in pastel shades, softly mixed together and rich in variations of intensity, comes through in a multiplication of apparently infinite shades.

In addition to being kept in its large size, the sheet can also be cut down to smaller sizes, making it an open and versatile collection.

Mix of Bianco, Cobalto, Rosa and Verde 2” x 9.5”
