„My childhood dream was to become a cowboy or a fighter pilot. A little later it was to become a world famous ballet dancer. For some weird reason these dreams did not materialize, yet I feel like I am living my dream every day. Objects of all sizes and shapes captivate my imagination. All things weird and grotesque are a constant source of inspiration and the experience of seeing a rough sketch on a piece of paper turn into a completed work of design, is magical to me every single time. From the moment I wake up to the moment I fall asleep my mind is at work, reshaping everything I see and touch. „
Shortly after graduating from Iceland University of the Arts 2007 in product design Anna Þórunn Hauksdóttir founded her company ANNA THORUNN with a simple but sharp vision of creating a deeply personal line of design products/artifacts inspired and drawn exclusively from her past experiences and memory of growing up surrounded by the pristine natural beauty of Iceland.
Anna Þórunn lives and works in Reykjavík, Iceland.
