Artecnica Tangle Globe Combining the sleek look of clear glass and the precious appearance of plated metal, Tord Boontje, a celebrated designer and the head of Product Design Department at the Royal College of Art has created a new light that is born reminiscent of museum glass cases that preserve samples of luxurious, exotic vegetation found in remote, pristine jungles. A new etched metal Tangle was specifically designed to be encased in the Globe to achieve both an exotic natural appearance and levels of high light reflectivity. The Globe and the Tangle can also be used individually; while the Globe can also be used in conjunction with any Garland.
Tord Boontje was born in The Netherlands in 1968. His education at the Eindhoven Design Academy, class of 1991, and the Royal College of Art London, graduate of 1994, set the foundation for Studio Tord Boontje.
