Intruding on the standard production method, FormaFantasma introduces unexpected meaning and craft into a mass produced product. Intricately shaped inlays are incorporated into chip board—transforming the material from under- to Upperlayment™.
Part of the Hidden inlays series, Clock inlays incorporates an inexpensive department store clock, preciously packed in chip board with integrated inlays of clock part shapes. It is an unusual reversal of value: the packaging becomes more precious than the mass produced object it contains. “Hiding is our favourite condition at the moment. To be hidden in time when our privacy it is becoming increasingly more public, it is a privilege,” explain the designers.
