Tord Boontje is renowned for using digital technology to create whimsical pieces for the home at reasonable prices.  His new series of lighting inspired this post.  The future flora lights are made from precision-etched metal sheets that ship flat and transform into three exotic bloom-shaped forms.   Louise Campbell’s collage pendant is comprised of multiple layers of laser cut acrylic that together evoke the filtering light of the forest.  Last, Poul Christensens 178 lamp is also layered and organic in form but designed 30 years ago, the lamp is actually folded by hand.
