Bryndís Bolladóttir is a textile designer and artist who runs a production studio in Reykjavik, Iceland. She is inspired by architecture, design and art which reflect her interaction between functional and visual installations. Playfulness is important to her through different setups and through different functions of the same idea. Bryndís uses Icelandic material in her work which is also inspirational to her approach in design. Bryndís is an award-winning designer and has exhibited and sold her designs to several private homes and to public places in Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands. She is collaborating with the Danish design company Normann Copenhagen with part of her KULA collection.
