Icelandic design in Helsinki

Iceland has many talented designers and interesting design but for some reason we don't hear much about it. Now there is a chance to learn a little about the talent on that beautiful island. Today Design Forum in Helsinki opened a exhibition on Icelandic contemporary design. The exhibition features Icelandic furniture, product design and architecture. I was quite impressed, especially by the architecture.
The exhibition is open daily 1.12.2011 – 8.1.2012. Go get inspired!!!

P.S. There is also an Icelandic shop-in-shop in Design Forum so you can buy some of the designs. I had to spend some money there...

In these photos work by Basalt architecs, small tables or shelves by Snaefrid Porsteins and Sigridur Sigurjonsdottir and volcanic sand vase by Studio Bj√∂ss.
