Tord Boontje

Celebrated Dutch designer Tord Boontje has become known for producing contemporary aesthetics with character. His work reflects a belief that modernism does not mean minimalism, that contemporary design should not forsake tradition, and that technology should not abandon people or forget its relationship with the senses.

His work is often ornamental, romantic and modern and he draws on the natural world for inspiration. Boontje works with many different types of product and uses advanced techniques and materials to bring his ideas to life, creating a paradox between craft and technology.
