following extensive research in bitossi’s archive, formafantasma presents a ceramic collection that draws parallels between past and future by reworking some of the company’s historic pieces and applying its traditional techniques into modern interpretations. during this year’s salone del mobile, the studio presents ‘clay’, a series of lathe-turned cylindrical vases with torn off edges alongside three decorative elements based on designs by aldo londi.

formafantasma’s clay vase collection comes with the topmost part subsequently torn off, due to its making process which generates cracks and imperfections on the edges of every single piece. the collection comes in two variants, a more traditional, glossy version and an opaque enamel, tactile version that resembles industrial rubber. in addition to their own collection, the studio has reworked historic pieces by late Italian ceramist aldo londi, creative director of bitossi for over 50 years, into reinterpreted versions, two in their original colors and a third version in a pale, glossy lilac.
