The backstory: In 2001 botany met bare bulbs when Dutch designer Boontje devised a pattern of leaves and flowers on a sheet of metal that could be cut with a laser. His light has been exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum, in London, and is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City.
What design pros say:
- “I can see why I’d still be excited about this piece in 30 years,” says Anthony Di Bitonto, director of industrial design at Smart Design in New York City. “Some things are too heavily styled, and they can look dated. But this is pure and simple.”
