The collaboration between Andrea Timarchi ( 1983) and Simone Farrestin (1980) began in 2009. Apart from running their Amsterdam-based creative studio, the two Italian designers also teach at the ‘Well Being’ Department of the Design Academy Eindhoven. Their creative output, elegant and witty in all its expressions, combines a rigorous and stimulating research background with a refined aesthetic sensibility. 

Works of Studio Formafantasma has been shown during the Milan and the Dutch Design Week, Abu Dhabi Art, during the ICFF in New York, Design MiamiBasel, the prestigious auction house Sotheby’s in London and other international design fairs and exhibition. They are also part of the collection of: Victoria and Albert Museum, Droog Design, Rossana Orlandi Gallery in Milan, Moss gallery NY, Nodus Rugs, Dilmos Gallery, Libby Sellers Gallery, Textile Museum in Tilburg, Stedelijk Museum Den Bosch, Mudac, The Art Institute of Chicago, Fendi and Vitra Design Museum. In March 2011 Studio Formafantasma has been nominated by Alice Rawsthorn, design critic of the International Herald Tribune and New York Times and Paola Antonelli, design curator of the MOMA in NY, as one of the twenty most promising young design studio. 

"[Formafantasma's] approach to design views at triggering off more critical and conceptual design dialogue through their work, underlying the association between tradition and local culture. In this regard, the object is significantly important in embodying 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. " - formafantasma.com
