Tord Boontje Named Head of Design Products at the Royal College of Art

Dutch-born, London-based product designer Tord Boontje is no doubt a force in the design world (and even influences tattoo choices). But, he's about to become a direct influence on a group of budding artists, already talented in their own right. He's been named the successor to Israeli industrial designer and architect Ron Arad as head of Design Products at his alma mater, the Royal College of Art in London. The Royal College is the world’s only wholly postgraduate art and design institution, and also one of the most respected. Don't worry though, he'll maintain his role as director of Studio Tord Boontje; his whimsical, nature-inspired lighting and curtains aren't going anywhere.
To hear what he had to say about upcoming venture and see some of his designs,

:

I am very excited about my appointment as professor of Design Products at the Royal College of Art. It is a great opportunity to lead and inspire a fantastic group of students, tutors, technicians, and administrative staff. The department has a fantastic pluralistic character, an experimental nature, a culture of innovation, and a very individual approach to student’s development. I am very keen to maintain these qualities and to build further upon them.
