Studio Hanna Whitehead is a design studio whose practice involves working with space, furniture and products. Based in the southeast of Iceland, the studio focuses on a hands-on approach, working in a very personal way, interweaving story, shape, materials and colour.
Hanna works on the boarders of art, design and craft often going between diverse materials within the same subject. She is very interested in the dialog between objects and viewer.
Designer Hanna Dis Whitehead graduated Cum Laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2011.
