On the evening of April 26th 2012 from 7-9 pm Peroni Collaborazioni presents FormaFantasma at RIBA, 66 Portland Place, London, W1B 1AD.
The evening will offer a unique insight into the personal reflections and anecdotes from FormaFantasma focusing on their combined interest in Italian craftsmanship, whilst creating and encouraging an audience discussion and debate around the importance of Italian design, its values and heritage.
The two met during their BA in communication design and their interest in product design developed during their Masters degree at the design Academy Eindhoven. Their combined love for classic craftsmanship has lead them to analyze and re-evaluate the relationship between “local cultures and global contexts” - translating those crafts into industrial processes and pushing the boundaries by working with unique and unusual materials, including bread. More recently the duo has embarked on a project with Fendi, working specifically with leather and looking at the complex relationship between humans and nature as part of Design Miami.
