Serving Trays Inspired by the Icelandic Environment

These Vök trays are by Icelandic industrial designer Dögg Guðmundsdóttir.

The name makes immediate sense—if you speak Icelandic:

“Inspiration and the name for these trays were found in the cracks and holes in ice that are known in Iceland as vök.”

“The Vök trays are three asymmetrically folded forms. They can be used separately and stored together to create a space saving solution.”

“Vök is a part of the ROOTS collection, where Dögg goes back to her roots in Iceland and uses the shape of the trees, mountains, cracked ice and dried sand as an inspiration for the shapes of her new series.”

I’d reckon the inspiration for the color also came from the Icelandic environment. This is a shot taken by Guðmundsdóttir at Hvaleyrarvatn Lake:

The materials used are Oak and powder-coated aluminum. The trays are made to order.
