Tord Boontje

The Dutch designer Tord Boontje studied at both the Design Academy in Eindhoven and the Royal College of Art in London, where he founded Studio Tord Boontje in 1996. Since then he has worked on a series of innovative designs in the fields of lighting, furniture, textiles, and graphic design for international companies, as well as creating individual installations. His works form part of the collections of major museums, such as the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Tord Boontje’s partnership with Swarovski began in 2002 when he designed the Blossom chandelier for Swarovski Crystal Palace. For Swarovski Crystal Worlds in Wattens, Tord Boontje designed a star that lights up the majestic Christmas tree each year, along with luminous figures distributed around the entire park landscape. With help from fashion designer Alexander McQueen, Tord Boontje unveiled his almost four-meter tall crystal tree, first presented at the Victoria and Albert Museum in 2003 and which now forms the centerpiece of the enchanting, snow-covered Silent Light Chamber of Wonder at Swarovski Crystal Worlds.
