Brynjar Sigurðarson

First I discovered this project on the last Abitare I just received, then I had a double look at Brynjar's project, and it's a nice discover.
On top, multi layered glass vases in collaboration with Cirva, (Centre international de recherche sur le verre et les arts plastiques). While discovering glass paste, with beautiful colors, Brynjar comes out with a small collection of vases with infinite shades of green, than not only reminds him of iceland, but also on the dept and colors of the mediterranean sea, the layers of green flavours of gelato one on top of the other one and also a sample of rock stratifications. They remind of a silent and mysterious frost land, where the depth of ice takes colored shades from the unknown, where primaveral fossils and bacterias can be found.

How cool is this table? Supersimple and light that folds in practical square with even a handle. This inspires me because, it this case, shape really follows functionality. I would like to know if it is stable, but as a last minute table looks pretty nice. Those flat legs make me smile, they kind of look like a the silhouette of a sketched four-leg animal...yet, with a plane on top.

''Carbon fiber with a layer of veneer on top. The qualities of carbon fiber used in an honest way. The material is light and extremely strong, but at the same time it can be very thin, almost like paper. Six surfaces of carbon fiber are assembled with normal hinges witch enables the legs to fall in to the table-top in one movement.''
