About the product
Made from 100% superfine lambswool in a Jacquard knit technique. This double-sided knitting style achieves a design rich finish. The front face of the blanket showcases the artist’s design, whilst a birdseye pattern, driven by the knitting style is achieved on underside. The blanket has a noticeably soft handle and luxurious heavyweight feel.
About the artist
Andrea Trimarchi (b. 1983) and Simone Farresin (b. 1980) are Studio
Formafantasma, an Italian designers duo based in Amsterdam,
Their interest in product design developed on the IM master course at Design Academy Eindhoven, where they graduated in July 2009. Since then Formafantasma has developed a coherent body of work characterized by experimental materials investigations and explored such issues as the relationship between tradition and local culture, critical approaches to sustainability and the significance of objects as cultural conduits. In perceiving their role as a bridge between craft, industry, object and user, they are interested in forging links between their research-based practice and a wider design industry.
Their work has been presented and published internationally and museums such as New York's MoMA, London’s Victoria and Albert, New York's Metropolitan Museum, the Chicago Art Institute, the Textiel Museum in Tilburg, the Stedelijk’s-Hertogenbosch, MUDAC Lausanne, the Mint Museum of Craft and Design in North Carolina and the Mak Museum in Vienna have all acquired Formafantasma’s designs for their permanent collections.
