In 2009, Sigurðarson spent a month in a small fishing village in northeast Iceland, where he met a 70-year-old shark hunter who taught him how to knit nets out of nylon rope. Sigurðarson applied this experience to his furniture, combining it with wood, feathers and other reminders of the Icelandic wilderness to create a collection that is both modern and craft-inspired.
‘When I first discovered these roping methods I felt like I had connected with a hidden Icelandic craft,’ he says. Sigurðarson’s collection holds true to the spirit of our Adventurism design direction. Inspired by his travels and nostalgia for a simpler time, the furniture evokes the consumer’s desire for discovery and adventure.
