Tord Boontje – New Book!

December 21, 2006

Tord Boontje - New Book!
Outside of Rachael Ray, Tord Boontje seems to be going for world domination these days, and for good reason, his designs are not only beautiful, but appeal to the masses, which could make him a household name here in the states real soon. (Although, when I ask most of my friends (just out of curiousity) who designed the decorations in Target, they usually tell me that either 1) They never even noticed them or, 2) Target has an art department that does that stuff. I’m thinking we still have a ways to go here… Maybe he needs to be booked on Oprah.)

In addition to everything else Tord has his hands on, did you know that he is soon to release a book in the Spring of ’07? You can pre-order it right here on Amazon (I just did). Here is a snippet, straight from his website, which gives us a peek at what we can expect, “We have managed to create a comprehensive book of all activities to date. We have photographed all work to date in the forest, in settings and in the studio to create a spectacular documentation.” Sounds lovely, doesn’t it? Published by Rizzoli. To be released in 24 April 2007.

More details can be found here, where you can also pre order the book.

    I like the “world domination” description – that is exactly what Tord Boontje succeded to achieve no matter whether this was his intention or not. He has made all of us accept again the ‘lace’ that our grand-mothers made with love, and introduce it in the most unexpected areas and materials implementations. This has made our lives more romantic and our environment softer and cosier.

    Same here! Coincidence! Just bought a die-cut paper doll-like garland with bunnies 1/2 price (yay, me) with Tord’s name on it…I have noticed several artists names on things at Target over the years…I’m gonna go see more about this guy from your recommendations :)

    I think Tord is doing a series of household items for target, along with their holiday decorations. I saw some plates there and I swear I saw Tord’s name on them.
