SALONE DEL MOBILE 2017, MILANO

Posted 28 Mar 2017

Christopher Boots presented, for the very first time, a series of artist proofs and super limited wall sconces, set within an aged timber jewel box. To realise this vision, Christopher Boots was excited to be working closely with Calico Wallpaper, who have generously provided the jewel box wall coverings.

Inspired by the traditional techniques of Shou Sugi Ban, the display hinted at the steamer trunk of luxury laissez–faire travel from a time once transpired. Acknowledging this past, Christopher Boots utilized the materiality and textures associated with such nostalgia to propose an alternative to mainstream ideas of luxury.

Bridging both pre- and post-industrial manufacturing processes, the unique objects presented at Salone Del Mobile looked back at our history to envisage new possible futures for everyday objects.

There can always be light in a future that emerges from a dark place.

Dates: 4 – 9 APRIL 2017
Location: Saint’ Ambrogio, Oratorio Della Passione, Milano, Italy
