Multipurpose tray 

FÓLK worked together with designer Tinna Gunnarsdóttir on a multi-functional utilitarian item from recycled aluminium. The result is beautiful aluminium items that can be used in various ways, such as trays, a wood of candles, or anything else that imagination allows.

Metals are an interesting raw material because they can be recycled over and over again. FÓLK approached designer Tinna Gunnarsdóttir, who has extensive experience working with metals, including aluminum, and asked her to design a utilitarian item from recycled aluminum.

Meet the designers

Tinna was born in Iceland in 1968. She gained her design education in England, Germany and Italy and has been running her design studio in Reykjavik since 1993. Her work has been widely exhibited internationally. Through everyday objects and design research Tinna reflects on the environment whether it be domestic or the natural. She puts material and technology into unexpected circumstances generating a different perspective, an expanded experience - a twisted context. Her lifelong immersions in Icelandic landscapes contribute to her understanding of spatial awareness, formally expressed through material objects.

“Although resilient, I like to think of Platform and other object cast out of recycled aluminium as temporal or elastic, because through recycling they can metaporphose into infinitely different shapes, sizes and functions.”

-Tinna Gunnarsdóttir
