Icelandic Sayings

betri er lítill fiskur en tómur diskur better a litte fish than an empty dish
betri er friður en bardagi better is peace than war
aldrei er góð vísa of oft kveðin never is a good verse often too sung
allir bera eitthvað mein til grafar all carry some kind of harm to the grave
blindur ratar sjaldan rétt a blind man seldom navigates straight
eigi fellur tré við hið fyrsta högg a tree doesn’t fall at the first blow
ekki er allt gull sem glóir not all is gold that glitters
betur mega tveir en einn two can better than one
engar fréttir eru góðar fréttir no news is good news
engin nótt er svo dimm að eigi komi dagur á eftir no night is so dark that day won’t come after
enginn er meiri en maður no one is better than another
enginn er of gamall gott að læra no one is too old to learn
góður dagur byrjar að morgni a good day begins at morning
illt er betra en ekki badly is better than not
oft er vitur maður seinn til svars often is a wise person slow to answer
hver hefur sína byrði að bera everyone has their burden to bear
sannleikurinn bítur best the truth bites best
maður er manns gaman a person is a person’s joy

One shape and three materials in four objects

This line of plant pot, ceiling lamp, table lamp and speaker is called New Mexico. It is a creation of the NirMeiri Design Studio. The collection is the product of the investigation of shapes and materiality and the tension between the domesticated and the untamed, hand craft and industrialism. The main parts of all products are ready made clay pots, a 3D-printed and a wooden shape.

NirMeiri

The design studio was found by the Industrial Designer Nir Meiri and is based in London. They follow an unordinary approach to everyday objects and carefully select the materials they work with to play with the tension between domesticated and the untamed.

Other designs that have an interesting approach to the used materials is the Globa cork lamp or the Sand light.

É a tua voz que me acalma.
É o teu jeito de me falar de amor.
É a maneira que você me chamar com apelido.
É o que imagino quando não consigo ver você.
É você sempre você.
