After having been a treeless country for a thousand years the Icelandic forests are reaching a usable state. Due to a lack of forest culture over 90% of the harvested wood ends up being burned for heavy industries.
Prototype #02 is from the Skógarnytjar furniture collection. The collection was designed with the needs of the forestry sector and the available production techniques around the island, the outcome is simple and minimal furniture carefully crafted out of quality materials. By increasing the value of the wood with simple elegant design the foundation of forestry nationwide is strengthened alongside various pros for ecosystems and the environment.
Prototype #02, alongside the other prototypes, were designed and handcrafted by the designer from start to finish.
