Funky Terrazzo is an exhibition with vinyl rugs by Icelandic designers. Terrazzo is a special type of tile made from fragments of various types of stone, but Funky Terrazzo can consist of anything. The rugs are soft to the touch and each designer can stretch the terrazzo concept as he pleases.
Studio Flötur is a design studio that works on the boundaries of art and design. Flötur means surface and Studio Flötur focuses on surfaces in their practice.
Studio Flötur are Thordis Erla Zoëga (visual artist) and Kristján Jón Pálsson (graphic designer).
They make custom vinyl rugs that come in a limited edition and are signed and numbered.
The project is funded by the Icelandic Design Fund.
In the exhibition Funky Terrazzo, Stúdíó Flötur joins the artist Áslaug Íris Katrín Friðjónsdóttir and the design duo And Anti Matter, which consists of Þórey Björk Halldórsdóttir and Baldur Björnsson.
They have been invited to design their own rug under the concept of Funky Terrazzo. Terrazzo is a special type of tile made from fragments of various types of stone, but Funky Terrazzo can consist of anything on the vinyl rug surface.
The rugs are manufactured in Iceland from 100% recyclable high quality vinyl material and meet all the strictest safety standards.
