In a certain sense, travelers are rich. They are rich in stories and experiences, in shared meals and slow sunsets, in languages and lessons learned and friendships that defy borders and conventions. But what travelers often lack is a documentation of their skills. They lack a record of their contributions to the communities that they visit. That’s what this website aims to do—to highlight the genius and grit of the ever-changing group of artists sharing their craft in Borgarnes West Iceland.  Literally, fluxus means flow. It means fluidity; steady continuous movement. But like in art, a word can connote more than its initial meaning.  For us, Fluxus refers an art movement dating back to the 1960s that emphasizes intermedia—the complex merger between different medium of art to make things that are useful, responsible, and beautiful.


 

Barðabunga Stairwell: Birch plywood built by Samuele Rosso and Jack North.

Furniture that belongs to the house. Re-purposed: scrap wood from the atelier renovation, bed frame slats, closet door panels, and a door frame built by Jack North.  Cushions: made from old dresses by Marcin Stachewicz.

Chandelier:  a collaborative design inspired by Australian designer Sally Mills Spring collection. However we added cake cooling pans for a clock work pattern. Thanks to Marcin's great patience and skilled handwork the lamp exists and is structurally solid. 

These elegant, whimsical and functional window coverings are created by Samuele Rosso and consist of a series of individual wood slats which are harnessed by a top and bottom rail. The slats can be adjusted to turn in any direction or removed entirely depending on the view you would like to create.
