Designer profile: Tord Boontje

Tord Boontje is my pro-designer crush du jour. Coming from a background in industrial design, he blends those processes with fine-arts technique and a crafty sensibility.

In the award-winning Garland light, he combines soft woodland romanticism with manufacturing techniques created for the U.S. Air Force. Head to his studio website, and poke around the "Projects" section; don't miss the Icarus and Dedaelus lights! An in-depth designer profile is also available at dedece.
