DesignMarch, Iceland’s most important annual design festival, officially opens March 23, but some exhibitions open sooner. This Sunday, the exhibition Roundabout Baltic PLUS Iceland, opens at the Nordic House. It will feature items designed in countries along the Baltic Sea.
DesignMarch covers all fields of design, including architecture, graphic design, fashion, furniture and product design. It concludes on March 26. During the festival, the city of Reykjavík will be the venue for one hundred exhibitions, workshops and other events, spread across the capital.
At Kjarvalsstaðir, part of Reykjavík Art Museum, the exhibition Case Studies – Product Design into the 21st Century already opened last weekend.
During DesignMarch, Icelandic designers will introduce their products, and international design experts share their knowledge at the DesignTalks forum.
Tickets to the Reykjavík Fashion Festival, held alongside DesignMarch, are available at harpa.is and at tix.is. This year’s fashion designers will include Aníta Hirlekar, Magnea, Inklaw, Another Creation, Myrka and Cintamani.
