Biography

Dutch Tord Boontje is one of Europe’s most celebrated industrial designers. He trained at the Design Academy in Eindhoven before obtaining a master’s degree from the Royal College of Art, where he is now a Professor. His decorative, sensual work draws on the idea that modernism does not mean minimalism. Intriguingly, his designs combine paradoxes and play with perceptions, challenging the viewer to look – and look again.
