Iceland…the purest natural inspiration.
A few fellow friends here at the office decided to travel the world at college kid prices. Iceland get ready… We headed off to a land of visual opposition and juxtaposition at every turn. Seeing volcanoes one minute to crossing glaciers several football fields wide the next was commonplace. From the face-melting temperatures of Geysir to the wind-scraped barren wastelands in between, you would find us journeying to majestic, belittling waterfalls which mock man’s architectural and engineering accomplishments. Another day, you would find us free-diving the gap between the North American and European tectonic plates at Thingvellir in 36-degree Fahrenheit icy waters where few animals thrive. The world is an incredible place; why not travel to see it?
As designers, we have the ultimate template of design we call Earth from which to draw inspiration (biomimicry). I am happy to be part of such a fun group of people who share common interests and values.
