Tord Boontje's Design Philosophy
Tord Boontje believes in a delicate marriage of design with emotion that is as broadly accessible as it is enticing. He draws from the belief, that "modernism does not mean minimalism, contemporary does not forsake tradition, and technology does not abandon people and senses".
His designs often temper edges with softness, borrow inspiration from nature and employ a decor of forms and layers to engage and entice an observer's imagination and emotions.
Designs from Tord Boontje: Tord has created exquisite lighting such as the Midsummer and Icarus light and beautiful home accessories like the Ivy, Until Dawn Curtain and Thinking of You Vases.
