Botanica by Formafantasma

The Eindhoven duo takes a look at the world of polymers pre-oil times as well as combining nature and plastic. Botanica is commissioned by Plart, an Italian foundation dedicated to scientific research and technological innovation for the recovery, restoration and conservation of works of art and design produced in plastic.

Maria Pia Incutti, founder of Plart and Marco Petroni, curator of the project, commissioned the studio to create their own personal interpretation of polymeric materials.

“FOR BOTANICA WE OPTED TO INVESTIGATE THE POSSIBILITIES OF ROSIN, DAMMAR, COPAL (A SUB-FOSSIL STATE OF AMBER), NATURAL RUBBER, SHELLAC (A POLYMER EXTRACTED FROM INSECT EXCREMENT THAT COLONIZES TREES) AND BOIS DURCI (A 19TH CENTURY MATERIAL COMPOSED OF WOOD DUST AND ANIMAL BLOOD).”
