So far, we’ve presented a number of Danish, Swedish and Finnish designers, but we still lack some Icelandic creators on this blog. We’ve started out with a with this successful young designer some time ago, now we continue with a well established, award-winning Icelandic designer: Erla Sólveig Óskarsdóttir.
Óskarsdóttir studied at the prominent Danish Design School in Copenhagen, then started working as a freelance designer in Reykjavik. During her career she has collaborated with companies such as the German firm Ames or the Danish Getama.
Her love for curved, organic forms is evident, and this is paired with a great sense for details, thus creating true Scandinavian items. Below are some of her most notable furniture designs. For more, you can visit her website here.
