DesignMatch pairs local designers and international design producers, retailers, curators, journalists and other design actors.
DesignMatch gives an efficient, effortless channel to scan the Icelandic design scene for new ideas and suitable partners and topics, with all meetings arranged for one day and one place by our team. Enough time and is left to explore the festival program. For Icelandic designers, DesignMatch gives a unique opportunity to network and pitch ideas to the leading international design actors.
How it works
Designers are invited to send three ideas for new designs along with information on themselves and their designs. Visiting buyers, producers and journalists receive the portfolios and choose 5-7 designers that they would like to meet. We set up meetings that will take place on March 24, 2017.
Are you a buyer or a designer and interested in partaking? Kindly contact ElĂn Hrund ĂžorgeirsdĂłttir for more information.
During DesignMarch you will see what is going on and meet all the local designers, plus a handful of the most interesting 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.
Alongside the cream of the crop of the local design scene, design experiences, fantastic Nordic cuisine and lively nightlife, Design- March offers the perfect long weekend.
