The H4 Collection is studio Vikur’s first jewellery line, debuted at Design March 2021. Vikur is an Icelandic jewellery brand which blends the aesthetic of two home cities, Reykjavik and London.
We transform ancient volcanic pumice into ethically sourced products, striking the perfect balance between form and function, classic and modern.
For the past years, Studio Vikur has worked with pumice from the volcano Hekla. Pumice is unique. White pumice originates from Hekla, it is lightweight and easily breaks with little pressure or contact. When the stone is burned at low heat, it shrinks and takes on a vastly differing appearance. The stone transforms from a loose and delicate form to solid, a bronze coloured stone. The transformation of the material is fascinating.
The designer behind Studio It Is Vikur is Ágústa Arnardóttir. Both through her schooling at the University of Iceland and later there Master at Central St. Martins she worked with materials and learned how to utilise and enhance their unique properties. Ágústa resides in London where she works as a designer but parts of the year she works in Iceland.
