On Museum Night, Friday 3 February, a new permanent exhibition opens in the Design Museum of Iceland.
At the exhibition The Design Museum as a Home you can find around 200 examples of Icelandic design, while the collection of the Design Museum of Iceland totals around 5,000 items from the year 1900 to the present day.
The exhibition is set up as a basic picture of a home, but like in people's homes, you can see things from different periods side by side. Furniture, tableware, clothing, books and textiles from different eras come together and shed light on a fraction of what Icelandic designers and craftsmen have created.

Welcome to the opening of an exhibition that features graphic design by Dieter Roth. The work is installed on Pallurinn, a new small exhibitions space at the Design Museum.
The exhibition is focused on a selection of Roth’s output as a commissioned graphic designer, items less celebrated and more difficult to come by, due to their ephemeral nature. The work brings some insight into the development of graphic design. Dieter Roth (1930-1998) was a pioneer who shaped graphic design in Iceland and beyond.

 Curators: Arnar Freyr Guðmundsson, Birna Geirfinnsdóttir og Fraser Muggeridge.

Welcome to the house warming party with the modelmakers Snorri Freyr Vignisson and Lárey Huld Róbertsdóttir.
Over the last months, the Museum of Design and Applied Art has been archiving the work of the architect Högna Sigurðardóttir (1929 – 2017).
During the archiving work a number of drawings of unbuilt houses was discovered. The purpose of this project is to do research on these drawings and make models of two of them: Gnitavegur 10 (now Gnitanes) in Skerjafjörður and Fjólugata 29 in The Westman Islands.
Snorri and Lárey both graduated with a BA in architecture from the Iceland University of the Arts in 2022.
