Dyngja is an Icelandic word that can mean both a shield volcano and a French boudoir. Now, it has got a completely different meaning, since Dyngja also is the name of a new range of furniture from Getama, created by Icelandic furniture designer Erla Sólveig Óskarsdóttir.
It has been Óskarsdottir’s ambition to combine elements from the rugged Icelandic landscape with refined French elegance in the new collection, which includes a 2- and 3-seater sofa, an armchair and a high or low side table.
At active shield volcanoes, lava flows down the sides to end up as a hardened shield. It is this shield that has inspired Óskardottir to the sofa and armchair exterior design and the side tables’ angular design.
The entire Dyngja collection is made of oak. It will be out in stores in September 2015.
