On view in the House & Studio: Formafantasma at Manitoga’s Dragon Rock: Designing Nature in collaboration with Magazzino Italian Art On view in the Landscape: Tea House by designers Yoshihiro Sergel & Diana Mangaser Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin of the Italian design duo Formafantasma present a selection of works in dialogue with the House, Studio and surrounding landscape at Manitoga. The installation focuses primarily on their early works in which the use of materials and preference for the organic encounter – in both familiar and unexpected ways – Russel Wright’s experimental attitude and his vision of an architecture in harmony with nature. Formafantasma and Wright share a broad design reach, across medium and scale, from object to environment. Although separated by almost a century, both address environmental concerns and ask if design can be a steward of nature and our future.
