From fashion to furniture, architecture to the environment, food to product design, the festival showcases the best of the local design scene alongside exciting international names. The festival opens with DesignTalks, a day of lectures by internationally acclaimed designers and leading local design thinkers.
For five days, one hundred or so exhibitions, workshops and other events spread across Reykjavík, from the fishing harbour to the main street and the lava fields surrounding the city. Whether it be fashion design, graphics or architecture, Iceland's capital city lives and breathes design.
The Iceland Design Centre organizes open meetings for all DesignMarch applicants/participants. The meetings serve as a platform in which practical issues and questions can be addressed in a cozy atmosphere. DesignMarch team is also happy to help at email@example.com or +354 771 2200.
DesignMarch is organised by the Iceland Design Centre, the promotion agency for Icelandic design and architecture.
