or Call to Order

WireRing is a sophis­ti­cated exer­cise in reduc­tion. This wall sconce, designed by Formafan­tasma, is stripped back to its most essen­tial elements, and it elevates what is hidden by show­cas­ing the lamp’s wire. This offers beau­ti­fully rendered light from a spec­tac­u­lar wall sconce. The wire holds a simple ring fitted with an LED strip. The cable and ring are avail­able in differ­ent color combi­na­tions and a range of finishes.

Formafantasma

Italy

Formafantasma is a research-based design studio from the Italian born duo Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin. Since founding the studio in 2009, Formafantasma investigates the ecological, historical, political and social forces shaping the discipline of design today. Their aim is to facilitate a deeper understanding of both our natural and built environments and to propose transformative interventions through design and its material, technical, social, and discursive possibilities. Whether designing to a client's brief or developing self – initiated projects, the studio applies the same rigorous attention to context, process and detail. As a result, Formafantasma's entire portfolio is characterised by a coherent visual language and meticulously researched outcomes.

For Formafantasma, this crossflow of knowledge and experience taken from both their commercial contracts and their more autonomous projects has benefitted and informed the respective other. It has also given them a unique perspective of the design industry, allowing them to acknowledge the legacy of industrial production as the fundamental source for the designer's expertise and agency in contemporary society while also addressing its historic contribution to environmental instability.
