DesignMarch takes place from the 12-15 March in Reykjavik, where many exciting and cool events are happening.
The design store Epal in Reykjavik has an exhibition called The Countless Colours of Icelandic Design were they show interesting design by a diverse group of 30 designers. Some of them are well-know but there are also some newcomers displaying attractive designs. Let’s see a preview of the items at DesignMarch in Epal Reykjavik.
The artist Hjalti Parelius designed this desk which is called D01. He wanted to design a simple and easy to use desk, with good storage and a lot of room for drawing equipment and a computer. I think this table is interesting, simple and the sides of the table are beautifully done and match well with the black surface.
Thelma presented this new wonderful necklace called ,,Smyrilsvarpið” made of clay and she hand paints every piece which makes every necklace unique. The eggs are in brown colours which harmonize well with the rose gold chain. In 2011 she revealed her first necklace called Kríuvarpið and after that she has made 3 other series.
The design duo Postulína, Guðbjörg Káradóttir and Ólöf Jakobína Ernudóttir, make these beautiful flower pots made of porcelain. Every piece is handmade and they come in different sizes and types. They’re so adorable the ones that hang in the brown string, especially with the little details at the bottom. The colour of the flower pots go well with the green plant, it would be perfect to have at least two of them hanging together.
Erla Sólveig is a furniture designer. She presented these two types of chairs which she calls Rokki and Mokki, which I think are enjoyable and memorable names. Rokki is the rocking chair, it’s really comfortable to sit in them. The thick leather seat is fluffy and the rope gives it a catchy look. It’s always so relaxing to wiggle in these kind of chairs.
This light is called Möskvar and is designed by HAF in collaboration with experienced Icelandic net makers and is a reinterpretation of the classic crystal chandelier. The first thing that caught my eye was the reflection of the light which makes it more attractive. It has a nice feature because it can be flat packed.
See you at DesignMarch!
