Christopher boots is a Melbourne based industrial designer, driven by a love of nature and light. Having graduated from industrial design at the national school of design (Prahran, 2005), Christopher boots has a background in product design engineering. An apprenticeship with lighting pioneer Geoffrey Mance followed. Boots began his own architectural lighting design practice in April 2011, releasing the first collection in November 2011. Marrying traditional and cutting edge materials with various techniques, the output of bespoke hand crafted lighting transforms architecture. Boots’ extensive travel, research and training in the arts and architecture fields informs every project, providing lighting pieces with narratives of understated luxury. New techniques and material exploration continue daily in the Fitzroy studio.
