Antler Train by Gero GrundmannMAKERS
Using antlers collected from the highlands around Egilsstaðir, Gero has crafted a train environment that can work on the popular Brio system of toys. The design of the train was in part inspired by the legend of the local Lagarfljót worm, reflecting Gero’s long-standing interest in storytelling and narrative through design.
Gero Grundmanns Antler Train concept for Designs from Nowhere build on the ideologies of MAKE to explore the possibilities for small-scale design and production in East Iceland, using locally sourced materials and skills. The work was created in collaboration with local practitioner in Egilsstaðir.
