THE STUDIO

Established 11-11-11, the Christopher Boots studio was founded on material and metaphysical exploration of quartz crystal, birthing a signature aesthetic. Exploring relationships between architecture, symbology and geometry found in nature offers a contemporary interpretation of pattern, structure and symmetry.

All works are handmade with love and care, with a diverse team of skilled artisans. Collaborations with glass blowers, coppersmiths, ceramicists, sculptors, and bronze casters, ensures a commitment to quality and underscores an investigative sensibility, giving birth to an aesthetic often unexpected.

We design, prototype and build in our Melbourne studios, honouring traditional elements of form, proportion and scale, marrying traditional and cutting edge materials with various techniques, creating future antiques designed for transforming architecture.

Collaborating with architects, interior designers and private clients fuels the dialogue between the worlds we all transverse.

CHRISTOPHER BOOTS

Born 1979, Christopher Boots is driven by a love of nature and light with a commitment to nothing short of excellence. Trained in Industrial Design, Boots’ focus is creating lighting, interpreted as sculptural objects. 

Boots looks to classical and metaphysical worlds, honouring elegant proportions, precise details, and a highly developed sculptural sense; along the journey suggesting mythical ideas about creation and change.

He is a dedicated craftsman, seeking to elevate and transform materials in ways that highlight their natural beauty. After studying literature and linguistics, Boots graduated from the National School of Design (Melbourne), establishing his eponymous studio in early 2011, releasing his first lighting collection later that year.

Boots’ work has been displayed at Hermès, Rossana Orlandi, National Gallery of Victoria, Parliament House, Cassina (Japan), amongst countless private collections in New York, Dubai, Tokyo, Moscow and Paris.

Boots lives in Melbourne, Australia, spending several months of the year between Los Angeles and the European Union.
