Cool Design: Tord Boontje
These unusual designs are from Dutch born, London based product designer Tord Boontje. His influences are nature itself. In his earlier work ‘Rough and Ready Furniture he recycled from old wood giving the furniture a very organic feel. Amidst the playfulness, there is a huge amount of craftsmanship. He uses a variety of materials including steel…… I love the way some of the cut outs cast their shadow!
His designs are unusual and pay a lot of attention to surface. He has designed glassware, lighting, furniture textiles and even greetings cards! I LOVE these Witches utensils!!!
