Tord Boontje is among the current crop of designers revolutionizing every-day products with an aesthetic that softens stark and undecorated modernism with a burst of nature and lyrical expressionism. For the Netherlands native, modernism doesn’t have to mean minimalism, technology doesn’t have to abandon emotions or the senses. This garland of flowers and leaves wraps around the included cord and fitting to create a floating poem of metal, nature and light. Available in silver, brass, black chrome and, the newest color, winter white. The garland comes flat packed. Simply bend and shape it around the fitting and bulb to create volume–just like flower arranging!
