In 1972, Sigurður Már Helgason created the Fuzzy:

"A charming foot-stool with stubby screw-on-legs and a long-haired wool seat that evokes a traditional mainstay of the Icelandic economy, sheep. Helgason lobbied to sell fuzzy, which fit snugly into a portable hot-pink box, at the duty-free shop at Keflavik airport, his logic being that visitors taking home a bottle of Icelandic brennivin, a local schnapps, might add fuzzy to their collection of souvenirs. Fuzzy never made it to the duty-free shelf, becoming instead a popular local gift for confirmations and graduations. The story of this whimsical creation exemplifies a trait typical of contemporary Icelandic design: its pioneering spirit."
The Fuzzy Kollur (stool) can be found at three of the shops I mentioned in yesterday's post: Kraum, Epal, and Mýrin.
