Further information

2. Family life; the home.

The Hearth tea light holder series is the most recent project from product designer Ragnheiður Ösp Sigurðardóttir (umemi). The series consists of individual tea light holders (sold separately) that come in four different shapes and colors. Each holder can be taken apart and then mixed and matched with the other Hearth holders to make tons of different outcomes.

The Hearth tea light holders are laser cut and routed from MDF boards and then spray painted in bright and vibrant colors.
They will come individually packed in a hand stamped Kraft gift box.

The pieces for the tea light holders have now been laser cut and are waiting to be painted. The painting process is time consuming and expensive since the pieces are small and painted in 12 different colors and shades.
This project focuses on collecting pledges from people like you to finish the paint job and get the tea light holders ready for retail.

Ragnheiður Ösp is born and raised in a small town by the ocean in Iceland. She studied Product design in Iceland and later in the US with a focus on Japanese Cuteness (Kawaii). She runs her company Umemi in Reykjavík, Iceland and focuses on unique and playful items for the home and the heart.

Notknot
The inspiration for Notknot originally came from scout knotting. After looking through scout, nautical and decorative knots I wanted to play with their sizes and see the outcome of changing their textures and purpose.
The hard and tightly tied knot becomes soft and cozy. Its purpose which is being strong and secure changes to being comforting and warm but at the same time it holds its decorative value.

------- Icelandic description --------

Hearth kertastakarnir eru nýjasta verkefni Ragnheiðar Aspar Sigurðardóttur (umemi). Stjakarnir eru alls fjórir í mismunandi formum og litum. Hver stjaki er saman settur af þremur lausum bitum sem hægt er að víxla á milli og fá þannig margar mismunandi útkomur á stjakanum.

Stjakarnir eru leiserskornir úr MDF plötum og síðan sprautulakkaðir.
Þeir munu verða seldir í stimpluðum gjafaöskjum.

Bitarnir í kertastjakana hafa verið skornir út og bíða núna eftir að verða málaðir. Málunarferlið er dýrt og tekur sinn tíma þar sem bitarnir eru smágerðir og nota þarf tólf mismunandi tóna til að fá rétta útlitið á þá.
Þetta verkefni er sett up til að safna áheitum frá fólki eins og þér til að ná að mála stjakana og koma þeim í sölu.

Ragnheiður er fædd og uppalin á Suðurnesjunum. Hún lærði vöruhönnun á Íslandi og svo síðar í Bandaríkjunum þar sem hún rannsakaði japanskan sætleika (kawaii) sem hefur haft mikil áhrif á það sem hún skapar.
Í dag rekur hún lítið fyrirtæki undir nafninu Umemi, þar sem hún hannar húsgögn og fylgihluti fyrir heimilið.

Framleiðsluferli:

Stjakar sendir í sprautulökkun.
Kassar settir saman og stimplaðir.
Vörunni pakkað.

Notknot

Hnútar hafa verið hnýttir í marga tugi þúsunda ára til skemmtunar, nytja og skreytis.
Fyrir Notknot púðann valdi ég fjóra mismunandi hnúta, tvo kínverska skrauthnúta: Round Brocade og Good luck, skátahnút: Turk's head og blómahnút eftir hnútafrumkvöðulinn Clifford W. Ashley sem gaf út bók sína Ashley's book of knots árið 1944.
Með Notknot leik ég mér með hlutfall og áferð hnútsins. Hann er stækkaður til muna og hnýttur úr fylltum ullarhólkum sem gera hann mjúkan og hlýlegan. Notknot er vélprjónaður úr íslensku einbandi.
