Christopher Boots is an Industrial Designer with a background in product design engineering who is driven by a love of nature and light. Boots’ work explores the architecture and geometry of organic shapes and is often inspired by forms that are forged by the pre-existing natural elements. These forms are influenced by the patterns, shapes, and structures found in plants, animals, and minerals.
Boots looks to the classical world, and pursues an interest in design that elongates elegant proportions, precise details, and a highly developed sculptural sense. At the same time, his goal is to suggest surreal and mythical ideas about creation and change. He is a dedicated craftsman, who seeks to elevate and transform his materials in ways that highlight their natural beauty, which relates directly to the artisanal artistry, craftsmanship and life of Hermès objects.
