Nature in design at Ljósafollsvirkjun Power Station
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey through nature objectified by Icelandic designers and offers insight into the underlying ideas, e.g. through interesting interviews with Hrafnkell Birgisson, Katrín Ólína, Sigríður Sigþórsdóttir and Steinunn Sigurðardóttir.
Diverse natural phenomena and fond memories of nature past find expression in works such as 'Fjörulallar' (beach boys), 'Súkkulaðifjöll' (chocolate mountains), 'Kría' (arctic tern), 'Ugluspegill' (owl mirror), 'Leirpottur' (clay pot) and 'Bongóblíða' (scorcher), to name but a few. There are over 30 participating designers, including Brynhildur Pálsdóttir and Guðfinna Mjöll Magnúsdóttir, Dagný Bjarnadóttir, Guðrún Lilja Gunnlaugsdóttir, Hanna Jónsdóttir, Hafsteinn Júlíusson, Jón Björnsson, Katrín Ólína, Jóhanna Methúsalemsdóttir, Hildur Yeoman, Snæfríð Þorsteins and Hildigunnur Gunnarsdóttir, Sruli Recht, Vík Prjónsdóttir (a firm), and Tinna Gunnarsdóttir.
The exhibits encourage reflection on wildlife conservation, sustainability, manmade environments, and beauty. Each designer has a unique perspective on nature, and their treatment is as varied as nature itself.
Nature in Design is a collaborative project of the Iceland Design Centre and Landsvirkjun and is open daily until 28th August 2010.
Curator Hlín Helga Guðlaugsdóttir.
