    Since the introduction and growth of the Internet there have been numerous debates on the value and placement that printed matter has in our world. With much of our connected devices showing a limitless feed of customizable and personalized content, it comes as no surprise that more of us are shying away from reading and relying on receiving content from the printed page. Printernet believes that offline reading still holds tremendous value, that there is an unrivalled joy of holding the weight of a book in your hands, being able to fold it into your back pocket or read without the restrictions of connectivity or electricity. Printernet is a new publishing platform created to blur the boundary between online and offline reading. Subscribe to receive your favourite online content, printed and delivered to your door in the format and style of your choice. Printernet is a speculative publishing concept created by Design Academy Eindhoven student Sara Sturges for her 2015 Graduation within the department of Media and Culture

        • Studio Formfantasma: Naivety is a great starting point in design

          Since their start as designers, Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin of Studio Formafantasma have worked together very closely. After meeting as students in Florence, they enrolled for a Master’s degree at the Design Academy in Eindhoven as a team, graduating with a joint project – the first time in the school’s history that this had happened. Their graduate project, Moulding Tradition, crystallises their materials-driven, research-based approach to design. Based on a study of Sicilian ceramic traditions as far back as the 17th century, the duo’s work explored the issues of immigration, assimilation and the historical cross-flow of culture between North Africa and Italy until today’s times and, ultimately, its effect on production. The end result was a collection of refined ceramic vessels featuring portraits of people who have migrated to Italy out of a political or social exile. After graduating, the Italian duo founded Studio Formafantasma in Amsterdam. "Formafantasma means a ghost shape or form," says Farresin. "It’s a reference to the way we work." They go on to compare their method to a plant: “You always have a seed, which is the idea; it then starts to grow and opens up in different ways. Our process is organic because we let it grow,” says Farresin. Much of the duo’s work starts with unassuming observations. “We believe that naivety is a great starting point in design,” says Farresin. The belief that a manmade technique or process can’t be revisited because it is already established is short-sighted, they say. Their work often leads to researching the basic principles of a particular technique or process to discover its contemporary meaning. The studio’s latest work explores how lava can be used as a design material. “We have always been fascinated by the volcano in Sicily,” says Trimarchi, “and volcanic matter is something that has interested us because of its unpredictability.” After a few years of investigating the material’s possibilities, the De Natura Fossilium was born. The collection is made up of tables and chairs as well as more experimental pieces such as vases and boxes made from molten lava.

                  Persona is from latin words means theatrical mask, role or a character played by an actor. Psychologist Carl Jung defined Persona as a kind of mask, designed to impress others, and at the same time conceal the true nature of the individual. Inspired by what Pascal said, "All men's miseries derive from not being able to sit in a quiet room alone." I made chair to help people to sit in a quiet room alone.
