For this year’s edition of DesignMarch the team experimented with a concept called STUDIO 2020. During the festival the studio served as a platform for varied forms of interviews, LIVE talk shows, performative design interventions, thematic conversations and podcasts.
This was the right time to be experimental with new ways of communicating a design festival, content beyond and below appearances alone.
The creators and curators of the Studio 2020 are Hlín Helga Guðlaugsdóttir, curator of DesignTalks, Garðar Eyjólfsson, programme Director of MA Design at Iceland University of Arts, María Kristín Jónsdóttir, editor in chief of HA magazine, Steinn Einar Jónsson, designer and Einar Egilsson, filmmaker, with the support from Promote Iceland.
DesignMarch is a harbinger of optimism and creativity. The festival takes the opportunity to focus on design as a driving force for innovation, and demonstrate the important role of design, architecture and innovation in society, especially during this time of uncertainty the world is facing now.
