Iceland-based creative studio Flétta reveals a collection of table and lighting fixtures that is dominated by the towering aesthetics of totemic designs. Dubbed 'Trophy,' the capsule both has sustainable implications as it is essentially reusing old "junked items" and a sense of elevating things "to their former glory." These materials have been sourced by studio Flétta via various flea markets, charity shops and sports clubs that had no use for some of their trophies.
The project is deeply rooted in the intricacies of value and how the quality can change over time either for better or for worse. The totemic designs are surely quite interesting as they do not only present a useful piece of furniture but they also feature a very sculptural look which is highly desirable in the context of contemporary design.
