formafantasma: baked

the ‘baked’ collection

for their latest project ‘baked’, formafantasma (andrea trimarchi and simone farresin) worked with the theme of ‘getting lost’. for the duo, getting lost during the design process is a beautiful luxury. it allows them to follow their intuition and curiosity without having a clear image of what will result. in this case, formafantasma looked back at their design memorabilia: ideas, pictures and techniques they had left behind.

‘baked’ draws on salemi, the sicilian folk event, where a flour based material is used to create architectural decorations. the project pays homage to bread and flour – essential materials which accompany our daily life – and to the craftsmanship of baking and cooking. the result is a collection of containers and vessels made from ingredients found in the kitchen such as flour, coffee, cocoa and spinach which is mixed together with other natural products like salt, shellac and spices which help reinforce the objects, making them durable. each vessel is finished with elastic belts which allow the user to arrange various baked products around the pieces as a new form of decor.

‘baked’ is a work in progress, slowly refined and modified through time and experienced hands like a good recipe. it is the result of a commission for an exhibition which is currently on show as part of dutch design week.
