Event Details

Birthday: 03.10.1968

Birthplace: Enschede, Netherlands

Tord Boontje used to work two full-time jobs: teaching at the London Royal College of Art and maintaining his own studio. In Mid-June he announced his departure from RCA, after a four year stint. Boontje, who is known for his floral decorations, managed to implement a new debating tool at the renowned grad-school during his tenure, which he called “three strands”: extreme functionality, the social manifesto and the fantastic. These tools are used to analyse and talk about design, aiming to see design as more than just a luxury of the western world, but as a global activity.
