Veronika Sedlmair(1985) and Brynjar Sigurðarson(1986) form together a German - Icelandic studio, currently based in Berlin, Germany. Since 2011 the studio has been creating a body of work driven from theatrical and natural references. Their practice may often link to anthropology and geology. They use various media such as drawings, photography, video, sound and objects in order to convey their work in a fruitful and a specific way. Currently, the studio has been working on various projects ranging from self-produced objects sold from the studio, furnitures, and a new instrument and a musical performance produced by Fondation d'entreprise Galeries Lafayette, Paris. Their work was awarded with the Swiss Design Awards, Hublot Design Prize and this years Swarovski Designer of the Future Award at Design Miami/Basel. Recent studio projects include work for brands and galleries such as Galerie kréo, Paris, CIRVA, Marseille, Porcelain Manufacture de Sèvres, Paris, PCM-Design, 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.
