Sruli Recht's speakers were covered in grime and soot; as it was the peak of the volcanic eruption, everyone thought this was highly appropriate. It evidently was completely coincidental. Joey writes:
"Concrete, horse skin, Kevlar, diamonds, seal fur, Arctic Fox, and the skin of a minke whale's penis. The answer to what these disparate and slightly uncomfortable materials have in common is the Icelandic designer Sruli Recht.
Recht has been based in the fish-packing district of Reykjavík since 2005. His studio is a cross-discipline practice caught somewhere between product design, tailoring, and shoe making, and produces one "non-product" every month from bulletproof scarves, to tables to belts and boots."
