Design Highlights from Iceland
On 9 April 2015 we were invited to Felleshus, the cultural centre and event venue of the five Nordic embassies (Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden) to see the Islandic Design exhibition “Spark in Berlin“. Four designers presented their homeland traditional pieces and and some unconventional ones. Among the four designers, Brynar Sigurdsson was present. Using the amusing and informative slideshow, he talked about the design scene in his country.
After the presentation, Edda Jokulsdottir, the Deputy Chief of Mission of the Icelandic Embassy, showed us around and shared the information about the political and social situation in Iceland. We thank the Icelandic Ambassador Gunnar Snorri Gunnarson who welcomed us and invited us for coffee after the tour.
