Formadri creations are characterized by simplicity, functionality and experimental design. Our ambition is to elevate these essential elements into new bold designs that complete any space.
Our designs are marked by durability, craftsmanship and high quality. Formadri designs have a minimal environmental impact and all our products are recyclable. Our products are made entirely in The Netherlands.
Customization has always been part of the Formadri legacy. Some of our products are highly suitable for color customization. Please contact our sales department for further information.
An essential quality of Formadri creations is expressed by the many ways in which our lamps are used today. Our products are designed to be used in different environments, making them both functional and versatile. We believe practicality does not have to be compromised over design.
Innovation is driven by experiments. At Formadri, we always design our products considering four dimensions: three of shape and the fourth being light.
Our use of materials is another area where we experiment frequently. Over time, you may see our product range expand with new variations of existing designs.

Designer Aad Verboom grew up in the Gouda area and moved to Amsterdam in the eighties. With a background in retail, Aad started to design a range of interior products for fashion retailers. As an autodidact, Aad mastered the design of interior lighting and furniture and various molding techniques to create very unique products.
Truly passionate about his products, work and live, Aad has always been a great inspiration for many people around him. He became a well-known figure in Amsterdam society.
Unfortunately, Aad passed away in 2016. His legacy lives on today in some of the most iconic products within the Formadri collection.
