Inspired by Chris Bettig

Christopher Bettig is a U.S based French multi-disciplinary designer whose work I love. Always with raw edge and buckets of punky attitude, his pieces still come out in awesomely sleek executions. He’s done a series of eye-catching spiky wood installations featured at retailers like J.Crew and San Fransisco based CandyStore Collective. You’re also likely to have experienced his hacky style over at Urban Outfitters where he worked as an Art Director for lots of years (between 2000 – 2010 he developed and art directed seasonal and permanent installations within all Urban Outfitters stores in North America)…

The joy of making shines through in his work so it perhaps it should come as little surprise that a summarizing statement under his website ”About” section states that… ”He loves to make things”. Google evidently appreciated that skill set and the fact that Chris had a special eye for innovation & creation, given that they gave him a job as senior designer.  

I´m thinking this installation at CandyStore Collective could inspire some bad-ass DIY bookshelves?!
