About Geislar designhouse

Palmi hails from Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland. His fascination with nature and the way things work began when, at the age of eight, he moved to a sheep farm in a rural area on the Eastern side of Iceland.

Palmi's career as a design lead and later as an R&D executive at Ossur - a $350M global innovation leader in the orthopedic industry - began in 1997. In 2004 he relocated with his family to Orange County, California to lead the company's new orthopedic R&D division as Vice President.

His creativity and passion for design and photography drove him to consult and work on a variety of projects in his spare time and ultimately leave his management position to establish his own firm, enabling him to focus solely on photography and design.

His philosophy as photographer is first and foremost to show people the beauty of nature; open their eyes to what we have and must preserve. He believes that if we do not stop abusing it and start focusing more on sustainability the consequences will be devastating.

Palmi uses his creativity to send a message to the rest of use by showing a variety of objects and circumstances in a different light. Finally, he shows us the beauty in items we generally do not think much of.
