What is your favorite Icelandic design?

I don’t really have a favorite in Icelandic design. The first things that spring to mind are the typefaces of Gunnar Vilhjálmsson, the beard cap by  Vík Prjónsdóttir and the Stuðlar wall / divider unit by Friðgerður Guðmundsdóttir.

Who would you like to give it to this Christmas?

I would like to give a Beard Cap to myself, as I kind of miss my beard.
Also, I’d give one to my friend Kristleifur, because it would suit him.

And who should be the next to answer these questions?

I would like to nominate Gunnar Vilhjálmsson for the next one.

This December, every day up until the 24th, we will ask a local designer the following questions:
