Craftica by Formafantasma at Libby Sellers

1 - 28 February '13

London

Gallery Libby Sellers presents the London-debut of Formafantasma's Craftica series. Initially conceived in collaboration with luxury goods house Fendi for Design Miami/Basel 2012, Craftica is a visual and tactile investigation into the diversity and origins of leather through a collection of handmade stools, lights, vessels and tools.

As Simone Farresin and Andrea Trimarchi, the Italian-born duo behind Formafantasma, have said, "the design is driven by the symbolic connotations of leather, a material that, more than any other, represents the complex relationship between humans and nature. Leather has the ability to evoke almost ancestral memories of when nature was hunted to produce food, tools and protection for the body. Searching underneath and above the sea, from the vegetal to the animal world, the installation offers a holistic view on leather as a material."
