Showroom and workshop in the entrance hall of the Icelandic Design Museum, 20. June – 20. September 2017
Sonja Bent and Elin Hrund have set up a workshop / showroom in the entrance hall of the Design Museum. Their aim is to build a new fragrance library from the Icelandic flora. They make essential oils by distilling and extracting fragrance from Icelandic wildflowers, plants, bark, and tree trimmings.  Handmade incense, candles, wallpaper and parfume still lifes are part of their creation.
Sonja Bent is a fashion designer. Three years ago her father became seriously ill and she devoted her time to look after him.
