Every March, Reykjavik plays host to Iceland’s most important design festival, DesignMarch, featuring more than 100 artist exhibitions, workshops and events. The entire city, from the fishing harbor to the main road to the lava fields, welcomes this show as artists and creative minds converge to discuss all things design. 2016 marks the eighth year the event has taken place in Reykjavik.
Using the Build Your Own Vacation feature from Icelandair, visitors can customize their own Icelandic getaway from March 10-13. Take in Reykjavik during a time when its creative scene shines brightest; visit openings and galleries, unwind in a quirky cafe and meet local designers over cocktails – just to suggest a few ideas!
DesignMarch is organized by the Iceland Design Centre, the promotion agency of Icelandic design and architecture. The opening event, DesignTalks, is a day of lectures by internationally acclaimed designers and the foremost local design thinkers. Grab your tickets for DesignTalks here.
