~ Tord Boontje// New Shop London

The Tord Boontje Shop will be opening in Shoreditch, London. Woo Hoo! Another very good reason to get down to East London.
Shop now officially open!
'It will be the one place where all our designs will be presented together and, as our design studio will also be there, we’ll be selling special items made by us that will be exclusive to our shop. It promises to be a very dynamic, exciting and fantastical space!
We look forward to seeing you there!'
 
Tord Boontje is a London based designer, who works with a small team at Studio Tord Boontje creating product, graphic and furniture designs. The Studio’s work draws from a belief that modernism does not mean minimalism, that contemporary does not forsake tradition, and that technology does not abandon people and senses. 
Boontje’s work appears in numerous public collections, such as MoMA, New York, The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, Manchester City Gallery, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Both Boontje personally and the Studio have won numerous awards, and in 2009 he was appointed as Professor and Head of Design Products at the Royal College of Art, London.

'Elements' - for Kvadrat
An upholstery fabric of a design with a timeless quality, and inspired by the micro-patterns and colours of the natural world.
It gives the piece of furniture an almost patinated look, as though it has been used for many years, like an old, favourite armchair.
