About the collection

Iceland; Surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean. Not loners, but a real community with a deep sense of home.
My fascination with Iceland and Scandinavia is a remnant from my childhood. The memories and events, which influenced me, still today give me a feeling of home. The aurora borealis, the stark nature, the humanity and the crafts culture all have an influence.
Iceland has a mystical image, but its cultural heritage is also important.
The connection between old-world values and technology has resulted in a collection with substance and unique features; that respects nature while acknowledging the benefits of the synthetic.
