DesignMarch Begins in Reykjavík Next Week

By Iceland Review

designmarch2011-logoDesignMarch, a festival organized by the Iceland Design Center to raise awareness of the growth of design in Iceland, will take place in Reykjavík March 24-27.

The festival presents a profusion of events, stimulating lectures and exhibitions which are intended to reflect the diversity of Icelandic design and architecture.

On the festival’s website it says that all over the city—in abandoned warehouses, shops, galleries, restaurants and in the streets—you will find both leading and grassroots Icelandic designers exhibiting, “making the event a refreshing town fair.”

The program includes an installation by Hrafnhildur Arnardóttir, aka Shoplifter, at the Museum of Design and Applied Art, Vík Prjónsdóttir’s scarves factory, a 10+ furniture exhibition, a mixture of fashion forces, Icelandic Display Typeface Design, Scintilla’s new collection of home textiles, Mundi’s next fashion collection, an installation by KRADS architects, the launch of a skyr confectionary tower and Sruli Recht’s ‘When Gravity Fails’.

“We are proud to welcome Berlin based designer Jerszy Seymour, Dutch architect Winy Maas, Finnish designer Ilkka Suppanen and Icelandic designer Siggi Eggertsson to participate in a discussion highlighting design in times of changes,” the organizers add.

Learn more about the program on the festival’s website.
