"Allegro-Crescendo" speaker
"Primavera" tiles by Bardelli
"Rialto Deco" table

"Garland light"

Tord Boontje's objects aren't always as obvious as they are beautiful. I first learned of this designer (top fave 10 for me) on my first trip to the Frozen Fountain www.frozenfountain.nl
(Amsterdam). I was as they say "enchanted". Above are some examples of his very personal and cohesive work. You'll note form does not always follow function as far as he is concerned. I would have never guessed that first image to be a speaker and yet it is! Talk amongst yourselves...
