theodora alfredsdottir & daniel durnin

Theodora is an Icelandic product designer based in London. She holds a bachelor’s degree in product design from the Iceland Academy of the Arts and a master’s degree in Design Products from the Royal College of Art in London in 2015.
Her work revolves around the narrative an object can inhabit and exploring ways of objectifying that narrative. She's interested in the way an object can act as documentation of it’s manufacturing process; a record of what went on between the machine, tools, craftsman and material as well as it can communicate it’s origin and former life. That often leads to discovery of unexpected qualities as well as it gives the user a subtle opportunity to reconsider our material world and explore value in a different way.

Daniel Durnin is an Artist and Designer based in London. Having completed an MA at the Royal College of Art in Design Products he has recently graduated from Oxford University's Ruskin School of Art with an MFA.
Durnin's practise is driven by his interests in the self and the relationship with our environment . Art is a catalyst for turning theoretical ideas into a reality. Not confined to galleries and museums his practise engages with a broader public sphere through momentary installations and experiences. 
Durnin's art questions our very notions of ownership, authority and community allowing for momentary redefinitions of our current society.
