Puddles, Puddles Everywhere

Not everywhere, actually. Just on our wall.

We are delighted to announce that the first of many products created by designer Tord Boontje have arrived at our House.


Tord Boontje.

Tord Boontje was born in Enschede, Netherlands in 1968. He studied industrial design at the Design Academy in Eindhoven and finished with a Masters from the Royal College of Art in London. He currently works and lives in Bourg-Argental, France. His own mini-biography, as published by Design Museum (Take me there!) is much sweeter and funnier. In order to fully appreciate Tord Boontje one only has to look at his interior design elements. Seeing a picture of one of his wonderous pieces is almost enough to hook you. Being able to physically view and touch a piece, well, its something you have to experience for yourself.

And now you can.

In his own words: “Just like clouds, puddles are very imaginative in making their own shapes, sometimes they like to look like flowers, sometimes like butterflies or birds, or sometimes just like blobs.”

Puddles are decorative surface tiles inspired by nature. Cut from mirror polished stainless steel, they are self adhesive. Each is a unique piece of art. Light in weight and easy to apply, a singular piece subtley enhances any decor. A grouping transforms a space into a dreamscape.
