Nepenthes

Designer Christopher Boots

In Greek mythology, Nepenthes is a magical substance that quells all sorrows.

NEPENTHES is inspired by the carnivorous plant Nepenthaceae, named after this mythical, soporific potion.

The flamboyant Nepenthaceae seduce their prey with enticing interiors, sweet scents and sugary nectar.

NEPENTHES expresses these dangerous but pleasurable properties through a sculptural contrast between the hard geometry of solid brass tendrils and the glowing delicacy of amorphous hand blown glass.

About The Designer

The Christopher Boots studio was founded on the principle of “Fiat Lux”: Let there be Light.

Established 11-11-11 through metaphysical and material exploration of quartz crystal, the studio gave birth to creating lighting with a signature aesthetic: exploring relationships between nature, architecture, symbology, geometry and geology, offering contemporary interpretations of structure, symmetry and pattern.

All works are handmade with love and care by a diverse team of skilled artisans. Collaborations with glass blowers, bronze foundries, sculptors, metal smiths and stone masons ensure a commitment to quality, underscoring an investigative sensibility, giving birth to a series of illuminating collections both alluring and unexpectedly visceral.

The studio designs, prototypes and builds in Melbourne, Australia, honouring traditional elements of form, proportion and scale, marrying traditional and cutting edge materials with various techniques, creating future collectibles designed for transforming architecture.

The work of the studio has been displayed at Hermès, Rossana Orlandi, National Gallery of Victoria, Parliament House, Cassina, amongst countless private collections in New York, Dubai, Tokyo, Moscow and Paris.

Collaborating with architects, interior designers and private clients fuels the dialogue between worlds we all transverse.
