Bongo Blida is a collection of decorative objects, designed to add a touch of adventure to existing tableware. The idea is to allow Icelanders to conjure up their own tropical atmosphere at home at a time when travelling abroad has become too expensive due to Iceland´s near economic collapse.
Bongo Blida was developed during the summer of 2009 at the workshop of Sigridur Sigurjonsdottir. Her collaborators were Thorunn Arnadottir and Hreinn Bernhardsson. The project received a grant from The Icelandic Research Fund for Graduate Students in 2009.
