Research and experimentation are the keywords in the consolidated partnership between MAXXI and Alcantara that, born in 2011, was renewed in terms of its contents last year. The exhibitions are now monographic and each year an established designer is invited to interpret the MAXXI collections.
In 2019 it is the turn of Formafantasma, a studio composed of an Italian design duo based in Amsterdam, Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin. Named among the 20 best international design studios, their work has been exhibited in leading museums around the world and features in the MoMA collections in New York. For MAXXI, Formafantasma is preparing a space inspired by Pier Luigi Nervi that visitors may enter and move around, a place in which the result of their interpretation of the museum collection can be displayed.
The installation will be acquired for the MAXXI collection.
