Christopher Boots

Christopher Boots makes lights. Architecturally beautiful, industrial lights that are more like sculptures.

Christopher first stepped on the path of lighting greatness whilst working at Mance Design. After spending five years at the helm, Christopher, whose background lies in industrial design, broke away and began making and designing under his own name.

A self-confessed lover of nature, his lights reflect the organic shapes that can be found there. Some look downright molecular! The Prometheus Light, for example, uses quartz crystals around a circular rim, refracting and distributing the light throughout the room. Other lighting designs include geometrical influences and plant-like branching.

All of Christopher’s lights are made using as many materials locally sourced as possible, and done by a team of elite artisans including glassblowers, coppersmiths, bronze casters and ceramicists. You get the impression that the studio is a hive of non-stop creativity feeding off each other’s talents.

Christopher’s own inspiration comes from a rather wide variety of sources. “I’m inspired by creatives such as Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, Alexander McQueen, Olafur Eliasson, Tom Ford, James Turrell, Philip Treacy, Bjork, to name a few.”*

You can buy Christopher’s lights straight from the studio (you do need to contact him directly for pricing) but where Christopher also excels is commissioned work. “Commissions can be a source of great pleasure or pain depending on the client; a great challenge to stretch out and place yourself in someone else’s shoes.”*

For more information on Christopher’s amazing lights and contact info, visit his website here.
