Since I still have Iceland on the brain because of the recent volcanic eruption of Mt. Eyjafjallajokull, I thought we’d feature some interesting designy tabletop pieces from Birkiland, the Icelandic design shop.
“She is a type of distinctive, flat-topped, steep-sided volcano formed when lava erupts through a thick glacier. Mt Herdubreid It is situated in the Highlands of Iceland in the midst of the Ódáahraun desert and close to Askja volcano, at 65°10′ 44.06″ N / 16°20′ 50.36″ W.”
The Lava and Moss trivets are also by Lyng. From the description: “Through the ages the strange formations and the the earthy smell of moss have been inspirations for folktales in Iceland.”
Hot/Cold is a pot mat, or trivet, that outlines Iceland including 11 of its largest glaciers.
