    A graduate of the Eindhoven Design Academy and the Royal College of Art, where he currently teaches Design Products, Boontje operates on the cusp of design and craft. As illustrated by the present work, assembled from laser-cut and folded sheets of mild steel, the designer seeks to imbue his products with a magic and romance that transcends function.
