Iceland's annual DesignMarch
takes place on 27-30.3.2014. Organized for the

the world into one big venue for design.
From fashion to furniture, architecture to food design, the festival showcases the best of the local design scene alongside an increasing number of collaborations with international visitors.
opens with a day of DesignTalks
tional keynote speakers and DesignMatch, a "speed-dating
event" for buyers and designers.
Festival director Greipur Gislason
– DesignMarch offers a unique chance to see what is going
on and meet all the local designers – plus a handful of the
most interesting international names.
– DesignMarch is held annually in spring, when the long
arctic winter draws to an end and the days become longer
than the nights. What better a time for a design festival for
a young, emerging design scene?
This year's festival identity combines the Victorian toy
thaumatrope and vintage electronics to portray the interac-tions that lie in the heart of DesignMarch.
The 2014 DesignMarch festival identity is designed by
experience designer Friðrik Steinn Friðriksson
designer Laufey Jónsdóttir.
The identity features a graphics, photographs and video that explore the power and interaction in design and the festival itself: The interaction between disciplines, the dialogue between the creator and the viewer.
- To us, these dialogues are the most important part of DesignMarch. The festival brings together the designers showing their new works, and the general public that comes to see it; the designers and producers meeting at the DesignMatch. The identity playfully portrays the way some-thing magical happens when people come together.
The graphic plays with the interaction and integration of colors and forms. The designers used the letters of the word ‘DesignMarch' as raw material to create a series of flower patterns.
– The flower in blossom represents DesignMarch as the embodiment of spring, new beginnings, the start to a new Icelandic design year, the designers say.
They then created thaumatropes, Victorian toys that creates the illusion that two pictures merge into one and seeing layers that converge to blend together.
Friðriksson and Jónsdóttir connected the thaumatropes to vintage electronics – cassette players dvd players, whisks and reel-to-reel tape recorders to contrast the patterns with a symbol of industry and cityscape.
The team worked across disciplinary borders.
– The projects with very open scope and unexpected outcomes are the ones we enjoy the most, Jónsdóttir and Friðriksson. Product designer Friðrik Steinn Friðriksson recently finished his MFA in experience design at Konstfack, Sweden. Laufey Jónsdóttir is a fashion designer and illustrator based in Reykjavik. Friðrik Steinn and Laufey have known each other since they were 12 years old.

DesignMarch showcases the best of the Icelandic design scene. Fresh, exciting, exotic and under the radar elsewhere, during DesignMarch you will see what is going on and meet all the local designers – plus a handful of the most interest-ing international names. The scene is small and intimate, so you will get up close and personal with both locals and the design superstars.
The event takes place in downtown Reykjavik – for four days, the most Northerly capital in the world turns into a venue for hundreds of openings, events, exhibitions and parties. It is more like a town festival than a professional fair – the entire city participates. You don't have to be a profes-sional in design to enjoy and partake in DesignMarch.
Alongside the cream of the crop of the local design scene, DesignMarch in Iceland offers beautiful otherworldly land-scapes, amazing experiences, fantastic Nordic cuisine and lively nightlife - the perfect long weekend, with some serious substance right there.
