Product description

Tord Boontje, founder of Studio Boontje, trained in industrial design at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and the Royal College of Art in London. His work places equal emphasis on emotion and design, drawing on the belief that modernism does not mean minimalism and that contemporary design need not forsake tradition. Blossom is a twisted bejewelled branch inspired by the natural world and the emotional associations of Swarovski crystal. Its effortless mix of handicraft, folk and technological traditions makes it a signature Boontje work.
