A journey through Iceland reveals natural, primordial materials: hand-spun wool, horsehair, horn, reindeer antler, lava stone and driftwood. Hand- crafted objects- each unique in the world- are made-to-order by Iceland's foremost artists and artisans. Starkness, restraint and strength of design reflect the stunning raw landscapes of the country- at once ancient and yet utterly modern.
Sculpture Installation Gero Grundmann and Þorpssmiðjan
Nine interchangeable house forms hewn from east-Icelandic driftwood are the result of a collaboration between Gero Grundmann, an artist who works in the fields of design, inclusion, ethics and sustainability, and Þorpssmiðjan, a workshop in Egilstaði on the east coast of Iceland.
