“Just Bones” focuses on developing a strong, natural material from animal bones. The bones are ground and their various qualities used to develop and create a material that is similar in strength to MDF.
Today, a large proportion of animal carcasses are disposed of after slaughtering, thereby wasting valuable raw materials like bones.
“Just Bones” is an example of how various opportunities are hidden in our immediate environment. By exploring familiar materials from different perspectives, new opportunities for utilization can be found.
Valdís Steinarsdóttir graduated from the Iceland University of the Arts with a bachelor’s degree in product design in 2017. She works in Iceland as an independent designer, mainly focusing on material experiments by recycling organic matter. In her work, she seeks to engage in a dialogue with her audience and strives to find unique solutions to social and environmental issues.
Often the ordinary and visible present becomes vague and forgotten. Analogue experiences have boiled down to a minimum during the last years. We are currently in a situation where much of our regular rhythm was interrupted, the everyday was frozen and almost disappeared for a while. It became particularly evident how the environment we are functioning in, what we have or possess, matters. Layers of the past provide a means to describe the world and rethink the evident. Remembering and untangling the past and the local provides a captivating perspective through types of objects, materials, and methods of making.
The Estonian collection, “Revisiting the Past”, is based on tracking the everyday and the conventional, translating observations, reconsiderations, and hints of the past into contemporary design. More than ever, the future is about rethinking the present and the past, of what we have and need. The past is heavily coded in our future.
