“My interest in the Tensegrity sculpture and my experience, have naturally led to my future development in the direction of the same style. Further improving my know-how as a PhD student, I was looking for applying the Tensegrity style in the furniture design. In my opinion, this is a new basis of the form-creation, demanded by the logics of minimalism and the natural approach not only to sculpting, but also in architecture. Moreover, the Tensegrity constructions give flexible behavior to the furniture and encourage its self-adjustment to the terrain or to the body. The Tensegrity furniture brings the sensation of flying in some elements, carried by tense ropes. This specific kind of tectonics touches the feeling of anti-gravitation and beautiful geometry. They require intelligent decisions that attracted me to follow the challenge to find my solutions in the construction of this type of furniture.”

The Moulding tradition of Formafantasma

Tradition can be a heavy weight and at the same time it can be the strongest source of inspiration. It’s the same with history, politics or love. Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin from Formafantasma have combined all the aforementioned and have managed to leave us openmouthed with their Moulding tradition series. Their inspiration comes from the baroque Caltagirone district of Sicily, famous for its ceramics and the purported local tradition. More specifically, the core was a Sicilian artwork called “teste di moro”. These are copies of vases of the 17th century that display the face of a native African- or Arab-looking man or woman. These artifacts refer to a period of Sicilian history when Arab-African people conquered Sicily. Due to this invasion the tradition of majolica started in Italy and later in other European countries.
