In the exhibition At Home in The Design Museum over 200 examples of Icelandic design has been put on display but the museum archive counts over 5000 artifacts dating from the year 1900 to the present day.

The exhibition is displayed as a blueprint of a home where different objects from different eras come together side by side as would be common in homes.

Furniture, tableware, books and textiles are displayed and exemplify a fraction of what Icelandic designers and artisans have been creating.

The home is in constant flux. Things are moved, thrown or given away. The creation of the home is a living process without a closure. The home is first and foremost a creation of those who live there. Personal taste, which is influenced by many aspects of people’s experiences in life, gives each home its own uniqueness.
