Fresh Icelandic design on Birkiland!

Birkiland is a new design-website I just love! Their goal is to introduce, sell and support Icelandic design, and I have to say that they have some really good products. We have heard the labels “Scandinavian design” and “Made in Italy”(just to mention a few of the design labels), but how come Icelandic design doesn’t have a stronger name within Design? After all they have some pretty cool stuff to show of on Birkiland! The products are innovative, modern, fun and untraditional, and I will show you some of them here….

Soley's final project from the Icelandic Academy of Arts is all about finding new ways of using existing ways of manufacturing to create something new that is true to its origin but at the same time a brand new product.
