Famed for his beautiful, whimsical, and nature-inspired lighting pieces, Tord Boontje’s signature aesthetic is a luxurious and modern romanticism. His work places as much emphasis on emotion as it does on design, drawing on the belief that modernism doesn’t have to mean minimalism, and that contemporary design need not ignore tradition. He trained in industrial design at the Design Academy, Eindhoven, and at London’s Royal College of Art, setting up Studio Boontje in 1996. His extraordinary success since then has seen his work placed in major museum collections, including London’s Victoria & Albert Museum and New York City’s MoMA.
Blossom is a signature Tord Boontje design, showcasing all the hallmarks of the gifted and prolific designer: a delicately twisted, bejeweled tree branch that sparkles with entwined LED crystal blossoms in a pretty spectrum of pastels. It’s as though a branch of cherry blossom has been frosted overnight in a fairy-tale wonderland. This is the witty and effortless mix of handcraft, folk, and high-tech traditions at which Boontje excels. Blossom can be dimmed, and it comes in two light options, a summery Warm White and a wintry Cold White (each in three sizes), ideal for creating dreamy and fantastical moods in any environment.
