What is your favorite Icelandic design?

I am always hungry, I never know what to eat, and my fist is not a good measuring tool, which is why I L.O.V.E. ‘I Could Eat A Horse’ by Stefán Pétur Sólveigarson.

It’s not exactly a spaghetti measuring tool, but more of a wise dosage guru.

I do not eat horses and I didn’t have any faith in Stefán Pétur’s measuring skills (what does he know about spaghetti, anyways?!) so I doubled the one-person dose, but guess what? I ended up eating only half. I bow down to thee, Stefán Pétur.

Who would you like to give it to this Christmas?

I would give this tool to all kindergarteners in Iceland, because every child deserves the right amount of spaghetti.

And who should be the next to answer these questions?

The next one to answer should be Siggi Eggertsson.
