Not only does James Thompson (AKA Black Badger) have a voice like smooth Canadian maple syrup, but he’s also got an approach to industrial design that is far outside the norm. Most famous for his outrageous use of luminous materials, few makers have what it takes to work with difficult, unconventional materials like 80,000-year-old mammoth tooth, chunks of superconductor or even finely ground coffee.

And when he’s not at home in Sweden, he can be found cooking up trouble near the independent brands like MB&F and DeBethune. Of course, this unconventional approach has led to quite a few fans, from George Bamford at Bamford Watch Department through to the one and only Robert Downey Jnr and the one and only Arnie.
