YNDI Object of Awareness
Yndi means bliss in Icelandic. Bliss is the sweetest nectar of life. In a blissful state, negativity recedes, and happiness, love and intuition grow. When you carry bliss, you are reminded that you have everything you need within you. True happiness comes from within.
Objects of Awareness
The Yndi Object of Awareness is an exclusive design in the Primitiva project by the renowned Icelandic designer and visionary, Katrín Ólína. Primitiva explores archetypal themes in a collection of talismans produced with the technology of 3D printing and cast in bronze by Kalevala Koru. The word talisman comes from the Arabic word talsam and the Greek word teleō, which means “I complete, perform a rite”. Through exploration of systems and patterns, Ólína has identified a set of primordial symbols and turned them into tangible realities that can be worn on the body. The Primitiva-Talismanscan serve to deepen our sense of self as wearable ‘objects of awareness’.
The Primitiva Form
The Primitiva project is elaborated through parametric software programmes based on self-replicating patterns found in nature and inspired by the mathematical beauty of biological forms. The name, Primitiva refers to “the primitive, the rudimentary”, primary and basic. Its shape is inspired by the serpentine curve that William Hogarth described as the ‘line of beauty’ in his tract on aesthetics, The Analysis of Beauty, in 1753.
