About the Exhibition
Dögg is an important representative of a growing group of Icelandic product designers who work with international manufacturers. Her varied designs reflect experiments with new materials from Icelandic sources. Armed with a powerful creative urge and a determination to find innovative uses for her materials, she often brings forth unexpected results. Dögg’s designs have a strong link to Icelandic heritage. She seeks inspiration in Iceland’s diverse landscapes and traditional craftsmanship, which she fuses together in new and exciting ways.
The exhibition at the Museum of Design and Applied Art comprises products and furniture from 1999 to the present. An emphasis is placed on the creative use of materials, which often reveal the origins of an idea and its evolution into a market product in the hands of the designer. The manufacturers with whom Dögg works include Ligne Roset, Cinna, Christofle, Be Sweden and NORR 11.
The exhibition closes on June 8th, 2014.
The Museum of Design is open Tue – Sun from 12-5 pm. Closed on Mondays.
