Ragna Ragnarsdottír

Molded Resin

By working in the intersection of design, art, craftsmanship and production, the designer explores new creative processes. Ragnarsdóttir is constantly looking for innovative ways to mix materials with the mission to create interactivity between the product and the user.


Husk Bench is made by pouring layers of colored resin in a mold making each piece unique. The material is strengthened by using layers of fiberglass and wooden walnut legs. 



By exploring the intersection of design and making, the designer researched into creating a process where the production would become a part of the design itself. Instead of making a drawing that then is communicated to a craftsman or a manufacturing company, what happens when the drawing support – the paper –, expends into the reality of a 3-dimensional process?
Exploring with material that designers have easy access too the designer choose to work with latex, water-based resin and wood. After months of trying to push this material in a functional process without the need of high tech machine, she had created a process where she, as a designer, can shape and produce her product in own studio.
