Christopher Boots is a Melbourne-based Industrial Designer driven by a love of nature and light, with a commitment to nothing short of excellence.
Christopher’s handmade work—including lights, furniture and objects—explores the architecture and geometry of organic shapes, and is often inspired by forms found in plants, animals, and minerals. Christopher’s Greek heritage is reflected in the fusion of natural and classical, with mythology a core concept driving his work.
Christopher graduated with a BA in Industrial Design at the National School of Design (Prahran, 2005). An apprenticeship with lighting pioneer Geoffrey Mance followed, leading to half a decade of training in various design and lighting techniques. Christopher launched his studio in 2011 and in the short span of time since, Christopher Boots has grown from a one-person-show to a team of thirty five.
While the craft of Christopher Boots can be found in London, Vancouver, Los Angeles and Dubai, all products are made in his Melbourne Atelier with love and care by artisans—amongst them glass blowers, copper smiths, ceramicists, sculptors, and bronze casters, ensuring a commitment to superb quality. With every project Christopher Boots seeks to elevate and transform his materials in a way that highlights their natural beauty.
Whether for a private residence, luxury hotel, museum or public space, the work of Christopher Boots accents and complements the dramatic experience of extraordinarily designed spaces.
When not travelling, Christopher lives in his studio in Fitzroy, Melbourne.
