We are very proud to have received our third award for our last product line. This time it was The Reykjavík Grapvine that gave us this honour. They wanted to do something special for this year´s DesignMarch and the outcome was The Grapevine Product Awards. We were awarded for The Best Product Line of the Year and our friend Andrea Maack was awarded for The Product of the Year for her beautiful perfumes. We are very grateful and happy. On our award document is the following written:
"The Reykjavík Grapevine hereby awards Vík Prjónsdóttir for carrying The Product Line of the Year 2011. The product line was chosen by a interdisciplinary committee made up of shopkeepers and designers. The committee´s argument for their selection is as follows:
In 2005, Vík Prjónsdóttir released their first product line, which was made in cooperation with Víkurprjón from Vík í Mýrdal. The product line immediately received much attention, which has remained constant since.
A magnificent world is created behind each product, rich of history and beautiful metaphors. The product line is made in Iceland in its entirety, from the ideas´ inception until the final product. Vík Prjónsdóttir do not run away from their heritage, choosing rather to work with it in creative and fresh ways. Their products evolve and constantly surprise. Vík Prjónsdóttir prove yet again that one can design, produce and sell unique goods in Iceland."
