Faberhama is the design team of Paola Amabile and Alberto Fabbian. The pair is from Italy but they work in Amsterdam. They state in their biography that their role is to be “responsible explorers by investigating new connections among actors, processes and knowledge, between tradition and innovation.” A theme of their design is the transferal of contents between several forms: “objects, situations or food for thought.”
&Ability is a 2012 project between Faberhama, Antoniazzi & Piovesana and Bosa Ceramiche. The set is a mix of materials, including oak wood, wicker and ceramics. They think of the set as a network, stating “&Ability wants to interpret networks as personal and business intersections, reflecting culture and land through unique and matchless know-how.”
“&Ability is made of one wooden table holding different components: lampshades, bowls, wicker baskets or ceramic vases, each of them carrying its own identity, even though they’re part of the same project.
“Components are connected in a dynamic dialogue and may be combined upon user’s taste and needs, creating different compositions, in which weaving is the continuity element.”
