Clock inlays

Intruding on the standard production method, FormaFantasma introduces unexpected meaning and craft into a mass produced good. Intricately shaped inlays are incorporated into chip board—transforming the material from under- to Upperlayment™. Part of the Hidden inlays series, in Clock inlays, an inexpensive department store clock is preciously packed in chip board with integrated inlays of clock part shapes. It is an unusual reversal of value: the packaging becomes more precious than the mass produced object it contains.

Trimarchi & Farresin both studied in Florence at ISIA (University of Industrial and Communication Design) and since then have both graduated from the IM Master course at the Design Academy Eindhoven. In 2006 they started working together on communication and illustration projects and currently are focusing on product design, but maintaining a strong iconographical approach.
