BOLIA X ICELAND | HEIMA art residency

I am about to pack my suitcase for DesignMarch 2016, Iceland’s annual design and fashion festival, when visiting Iceland for the first time last year, I immediately felt at home and kind of lost my heart to it and am so excited to go back. I got to meet lots of Icelandic designers and found out that being so isolated is not that easy for upcoming designers.

I was really happy to learn BOLIA has established a collaboration with the creative people behind HEIMA – an art residency located in Seyðisfjörður, East Iceland. HEIMA is a multidisciplinary art residency for emerging and established artists. The 350 square meter house and studio space is dedicated to facilitate artistic explorations on a local, national and international level.

French photographer Renaud Cambuzat recently spent time at HEIMA Art Residency documenting the life and work surrounding the residency, see the video to get to learn more about HEIMA and see a glimp of the beautiful Iceland. A second video showing Laura Tack, a Belgian artist who currently is a resident at HEIMA will be available soon.

This year we see a lot of fashion designers designing for furniture brands, for Bolia Soulland designed a limited collection of exclusive furniture and accessory items, that will be available in August.
