Thorunn Arnadottir’s multi-disciplinary work spans a host of different topics and techniques, driven by curiosity, experimentation and interest in various cultures, materials and processes.
Having learned basic net-making skills from net-making company Egersund Island in Eskifjordur. Working alongside the Egersund team, Thorunn used the same materials and techniques but on much smaller scale to create the Skip Ahoy collection in collaboration with Designs from Nowhere.
The collection Ship Ahoy has a theme of ˜playtime” and features skipping ropes, hula hoops, bags and key-chains made from the hard wearing net material in a variety of colours. In 2014 Thounn won the Icelandic Design Awards for the group project Austurland: Designs from Nowhere.
