What I covet from DesignMarch 2014

Being rather worse for wear after the party hopping and dining out on Friday night, plus dog sitting over the weekend a dog called Wolf (who, like me, was also rather worse for wear recovering after an operation on his leg), changes of visiting each and every event at this year´s DesignMarch were pretty much out of the question, which was ok. Besides good design I love dogs and I had a really cozy time with Wolf over the weekend. 
But from what I saw of DesignMarch, I in particular enjoyed visiting The Culture House (one of the most architecturally perfect buildings here in Reykjavik), which this year was dedicated exclusively to exhibitions on graphic design and designers. I always enjoy meeting (although very briefly this time) Hildur and Ólöf at Reykjavik Letterpress  who this year introduced us to Dutch letterpress/graphic designer Tiny Risselada and I personally thought graphic designer Sigríður Rún Kristinsdóttir´s exhibition/workshop, Anatomy of Letters, the best exhibition overall this year. 

Spark Design Space is one of my favorite design shop to visit and there I saw this lovely cup by designer Guðrún Lilja Guðlaugsdóttir, her contribution to an exhibition dedicated to tea.

Today I visited Epal, another favorite design shop which this year presented The Countless Colours of Icelandic Design, where a selection of new-ish designers presented their latest products.  Here are just a few of my favorites seen in Epal this afternoon.
