By now, you must have seen Tord Boontje's Midsummer Light, yes? I think I can safely say that it, along with several of his other designs, was partially responsible for the laser-cut lace trend that's been going on lately. But Boontje isn't just a trend-setter; he follows the trends as well. He's reinvented his ubiquitous pendant in ombré, a recent trend that's been flaunted all over catwalks and kitchens for months now. Regardless, I'm loving this "fading" (as it's called), and hope to see it in more colors. Let's wait and see if Boontje can work any other fads into this pendant. Maybe he'll make his next one out of birch.
