Cookie Cutter Designs? Not Quite

Tordboojte_1An odd fact has been represented again and again in the design world recently: negative space creates positive vibes. Just look at designs by Tord Boontje and Louise Campbell.

Boontje makes whismical flower, deer and rabbit filled cut outs in Tyvek, a super strong sythetic paper. His work becomes curtains, lamps, even note cards and brings a new fun, hidden garden of earthly delights feel to modern design.

It's a feeling Campbell captured in her 2002 creation for the Crown Prince of Denmark. A rubber chair with fanciful tulip and heart cut outs, the Prince chair has been put into production by Hay.Lcampbellhay

But don't worry, you're still in luck because these curtains, called Until Dawn, are such design hits, they are available at the MoMA Online Store ( for $90 non-member, $81, member. Always good to support the MoMA, but I also found it at Shop Spruce, (, for just $80.

Good Luck!
