Concept

Iceland native Hlynur Atlason was a political science major when he was invited to an open house at Parsons Paris, a branch of the New York school. “There were all these people doing these really interesting things in art,” he recalls. “I switched paths right there.” To pursue product design, he transferred to Parsons in New York, where he continues to live today. The Lína Swivel Chair (2018) began with a desire to create a chair as one solid form. The result is both clean and complex, without a single straight line. Every surface is moving, and curves are continuously changing trajectory. “It’s a sculpted shape that one can enjoy examining,” he says. Icelandic for “line,” Lína “embraces you with all the softness on the inside.” Made in Italy.
