The Reykjavik born brand FÓLK experiments with young Icelandic designers on creating functional objects for the home.
At Design March this year FÓLK introduces new works by upcoming designers Jón Helgi Hólmgeirsson, Ólína Rögnudóttir and Theodóra Alfreðsdóttir. The collaboration of FÓLK and these three talented designers is driven by experiments of local, natural or upcycled materials, feeding a process for a new circular economy.
FÓLK presents new designs by three talented designers during the exhibition Domestic Landscapes taking place at Reykjavik‘s Design March 2019.
Choices of raw materials in product design, development and manufacturing has never been as important as now. FÓLK seeks to work with natural, recyclable or upycled materials in its design processes, in order to support the transition to a circular economy.
This time the focus is on a few interesting raw materials: icelandic stone types, found in Icelandic nature or urban areas, upcycled textiles designed for circularity, and upcycled aluminium cans. The designers are creating novelties out of these materials among other materials.
On March 28 at 17.00 FÓLK will open its exhibition Domestic Landscapes in a deserted retail space in downtown Reykjavik.
