DesignMarch 2020

DesignMarch is an annual design festival in Reykjavík, organised by the Iceland Design Center. In 2020, the festival will be held at the end of June (24 - 28), and we look forward to participating for the very first time. The Icelandic Textile Center will present the exhibition "Traditional weaving and the digital future", showing how digital technology can be used to take old weaving patterns and transform into new. 

The exhibition is a collaboration with the Iceland Innovation Center and will held at Bismút gallery, Hverfisgata 82 in Reykjavík. It features the outcome of two projects facilitated by the Icelandic Textile Center: “Bridging textiles to the digital future", funded by the Icelandic Research Fund, and "Innovation in Textiles", a collaborative project with the Reykjavík Academy of Arts, funded by the Student Innovation Fund. 

Displayed will be fabric and upholstery samples based on old Icelandic weaving patterns, woven on a TC2 digital loom; design ideas for new textile products; and a video piece inspired by weaving patterns by Australian artist Caroline Huf.

Formal opening: Wednesday, June 24th 17:00 - 20:00. Then open daily until June 28th, 12:00 - 17:00. 

Welcome, everyone!
