Architect designer Óli Jóhann Ásmundsson was born 1940 in Reykjavík Iceland. He completed both his college studies and apprendiceship as a carpenter in 1961. He studied architecture at Nottingham University UK and graduated as an architect 1967. Besides working as an architect, Asmundsson has devoted much of his professional life to the design of systems for the building industry, such as partitioning systems and systems for prefabricated houses. In 1995 he started designing furniture and related work and in 2000, his Delta Chair was selected for the Icelandic pavilion at the Expo in Hanover, Germany, which resulted in a substantial presentation in the respected design magazine Moebel Interior Design. Asmundsson was invited to exhibit his collapsable furniture at the Icelandic Museum of Design and Applied Arts in 2002 and in 2007 he was invited by the Reykjavik Art Museum to exhibit his work “Meditation on Furniture” at the Kjarvalsstadir Art Museum in Reykjavik. This year Asmundsson has opened a gallery for his work named “Gallerí ÓJÁ” at Laugavegur 178, 105 Reykjavík.

Asmundsson´s furniture design can be found in the collections of museums in four countries: Kunstindustrimuseet in Oslo, Kunstwerbe-Museum in Berlin, The Museum of Applied Arts in Vilnius and the Icelandic Museum of Design and Applied Arts.
