“I’ve always been inspired by Trees. For this design, the concept was to move naturally, symbolically into the living space to create a functional, warm and supporting environment,” says Katrín Ólína. Silent Tree can stand on its own, or in a group. It can form a small forest to meet the need for peace and quiet.

"I worked on a research project with a local metal workshop in North Iceland in the years following the financial crash 2013-15. The objective was to look at ways to introduce new production possibilities to a small local business. As a tool to explore furniture and product design, I opted to work with an outdated, but well functioning tube-bending machine that was used to make exhaust pipes for cars. The machine only had one radius available for bending, which restricted the design process in a fun way. I created a series of home furniture in bent steel tube and included found materials and dead stock of decorative metal parts that belonged to the workshop into the design process. Through this process I created a series of products that focused on the Art of Reading. Together with the workshop we produced the series on a tiny scale for a period of time. It is wonderful to see the Reading Horse edition brought to life again in wood with Made by Choice.”
