Andrea Trimarchi and Simone Farresin are the Italian designers behind the Einhoven-based design studio with the beautiful name FORMAFANTASMA. Their project Autarchy pays homage to the uncomplicated, the simple and the everyday. The project have been seen in several well-known magazines and design events but is still worth to show it again.




Autarchy is an installation that proposes an autonomous way of producing goods and outlines a hypothetical scenario where a community is embracing a serene and self-inflicted embargo where nature is personally cultivated, harvested and processed, to feed and make tools to serve human necessities.

White and nature

White is purity, cleanliness, and innocence. Nothing is more classic than white. In interior decoration white is often seen as a neutral background color for other colors. White and nature carries a benevolent mood and subtle shades of summer and light.




Shades of white are suitable to combine with natural wood. Typically this color is almost always worked with “natural” associations: ecology, natural plants, natural wood, natural cotton and linen. In a quiet interior white fit well with a thin floral ornament of light wallpaper and curtains.

Yellow and vanilla

Yellow is sunshine! It’s a happy and cheerful color to use in interior design and decorating. It is a warm color, but like red, it has conflicting symbolism. On the one hand it denotes happiness and joy but on the other hand yellow is the color of cowardice and deceit.




There are many meanings for the color yellow, the most obvious ones being sunny, warm and radiant. We use yellow more than we know it, vanilla and cream is yellow, it is yellow tinted with white. Cream is an extremely popular color as it is warm but not overpowering, it is friendlier than stark white and we use it in every room and a lot outside the house too. Because of the high visibility of bright yellow, it is often used for hazard signs and some emergency vehicles.
