One of my favorite artisans/designers/awesome guy is Tord Boontje. He produces incredibly intricate laser-cut whimsical stencil designs for lights, furniture, installations, housewares and even textiles. I have his "garland light" and love it! I bought it from the fabulous Seattle modern furniture store Velocity Art & Design, His work really plays with light and shadow to give an effect that's much larger than the object itself. I especially love his curtain panels and would love to work with one of those in my own house one day!
