High Shelf, from The Silent Village Collection
When creating his furniture pieces, Sigurðarson explores the dialogue between culture and the environment. For his Silent Village Collection (2014) Sigurðarson traveled to Vopnafjörður, a small fishing village in his native Iceland, where he learned a variety of making methods from the local people. Sigurðarson incorporated his experience into this high shelf by using fishing nets, intricate knots, feathers, fur, and hooks to replicate Iceland's wild nature.
