Prometheus I+II

Designer Christopher Boots

Prometheus stole fire from the Gods of Mt Olympus and gave it to humankind.

More than the means for survival- light and technology, Prometheus’ gift represented creative potential.

The spark of creation, previously limited to the Gods, gave mortals the power to dream, create, imagine and challenge.

PROMETHEUS I is an ascending blaze of crystal quartz, venerating its namesake in a ring of flame, embodying the Christopher Boots rough-luxe aesthetic and is considered a contemporary classic.

PROMETHEUS II hangs natural quartz crystals downwards like Swords of Damocles, simultaneously displaying signature aesthetics of object, light and form.

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.
