The design duo Studio Formafantasma will present the Austrian premiere of their anniversary-edition glass set TS284 Alphabet for J. & L. Lobmeyr and and official presentation of the set to the MAK. For the exhibition The Stranger Within at the Geymüllerschlössel branch of the MAK in 2013, the Design Salon #02, Studio Formafantasma undertook a design intervention
to bring a classic set of Lobmeyr glassware into the present. The TS 284 glasses by Formafantasma were shown in the exhibition. The Alphabet series features precision engravings that reveal three-dimensional structures when the glasses are stacked. Now the design
team has created a special set of glasses for the MAK based on a well-known textile pattern by Josef Hoffmann for the Wiener
Werkstätte. Within a short span of time, the Italian designers behind Studio FormafantasmaAndrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin, both graduates of the Design Academy Eindhovenhave gone on to become shooting
stars in the design world. Their handcrafted series result from their search for old techniques and forgotten resources. The
MAK Design Shop already carries another successful item by Studio Formafantasma, the Vienna Playing Cards.
Along with Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin as well as Leonid Rath from J. & L. Lobmeyr, we cordially invite you
to the After-Work Meeting Point during VIENNA DESIGN WEEK.
