Opening of DesignMarch - it actually happened !

For this year鈥檚 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 Hl铆n Helga Gu冒laugsd贸ttir, curator of DesignTalks, Gar冒ar Eyj贸lfsson, programme Director of MA Design at Iceland University of Arts, Mar铆a Krist铆n J贸nsd贸ttir, editor in chief of HA magazine, Steinn Einar J贸nsson, 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.
