Icelandic design | Reykjavik School of Visual Arts X Aurum

Reykjavik has a few streets that are great for shopping and much needed coffee breaks, where shops and gallery’s opened their stores for special events, collaborations and exhibitions during DesignMarch. At jewellery and lifestyle store Aurum my eye caught an installation in the storefront that I thought was really interesting. Black ink dripped slowly through ice blocks drawing patterns on fabric, part of the exhibition ‘Chemical Compound’, a collaboration with textiles, jewellery and print by Aurum, the Textiles department of the Reykjavik School of Visual Arts and Textílprentun Íslands 

Tuttu is a collection of jewellery by Aurum created from the hooves of the Greenlandic reindeer and silver. The black and white jewellery is soft and slightly ruffled, yet also pointed and sharp. On the black and white textured surfaces you can detect a soft line that tells us a story about the reindeer’s adventures.

‘Inspired by Tuttu’ is a collaboration between the textile department of Reykjavik School of Visual Arts and the Icelandic jewellery brand Aurum. Working in teams of two, the students were infatuated by the shapes, colours and the texture of the jewellery. Have a look at the moodboards, inspiration and jewellery at Aurum and the result consisting of four different patterns for digital printing in collaboration with Textílprentun Íslands.
