Wood You? Icelandic Product Design Students Go Local

View all 20 Photos

Wood You? is project by seniors in product design at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. Sustainably sourcing wood from local forests, the young designers explore a backyard alternative to imported timber, on which Iceland has historically relied. The pieces created include tables with branch legs, biodegradable planters, jewelry, decorative sandblasted firewood, papery-looking cooking spoons, and even balloons. Imaginative, naturalist, and sometimes rustic, the designs show the potential of both Iceland’s wood and students.
