Studio Brynjar & Veronika

The work of Studio Brynjar & Veronika is linked to storytelling and narratives, which are deeply rooted in Icelandic culture. They use various media such as drawings, photography, video, sound and furniture in order to convey their work in a rich and specific way. One of the main qualities within the Studio’s work lies in the extensive research carried out, and the open-minded approach within the field of design; taking inspiration from the environment around them, and translating these learnings into objects. In 2011, Brynjar Sigurðarson established the studio, as well as teaching within the Masters department at ECAL, Lausanne, Switzerland. Veronika Seldmair, an interior design graduate, with a background in the field of Fashion and Jewelery, joined the practice in 2014. Current and recent studio projects include work with leading brands and galleries such as Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette, Galerie kréo, CIRVA, Manufacture de Sèvres, PCM, and Spark Design Space and Camper. Brynjar’s documentary, Borgþór Sveinsson, was presented at the Art Film Festival in Den Bosch, Holland and was recently acquired as part of the permanent collection of MAK, Vienna.
