The Expressive qualities of light exhibition * by Formafantasma

formafantasmaThe Peep-Hole Contemporary Art Centre in Milan are preparing to recieve a solo exhibition by studio Formafantasma, called Anno tropico wich consists in the “expressive qualities of light”.

The Italian designers duo based in Amsterdam integrated by Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, Forefantasma frequently experiments with very unusual materials, and previously has created a series of objects dedicated to the passing of time. The pieces for Anno tropic are designed to “shape” light, generating reflections and shadows in the gallery space.

Created as circular structures, the objects, reminiscent of astronomical rings and an armillary sphere – a revolving model of objects in space centred around the sun or earth.
“At the same time, the working models confirm that the procedure and approach are still based on intuition and experimentation”.
The brass is used for a series of designs for its weight and reflection, and gives a nod to the work of Romanian sculptor Constantin Brâncuși – well-known for his use of the metal. Lamps formed from thin poles, both stood on the floor and suspended from the ceiling, direct light from small bulbs in a variety of ways.

Today, this duo have directed their research towards light, creating a series of pieces that range in size and application, but are all themed around the subject

Formafantasma’s other recent projects include the catwalk design for fashion label Sportmax, for which lengths of translucent plastic were used to create “infinite loops” around the venue. Their work has been presented and published internationally and museums and the Mak Museum in Vienna have all acquired Formafantasma’s designs for their permanent collections.
