Taste of Iceland in NYC: Iceland’s Designers
At this year’s Taste of Iceland in New York City, join Ingibjorg Greta Gisladottir, the CEO and creative director of Reykjavik Runway, for a discussion on the key characteristics of the new wave of Icelandic design. As limited domestic manufacturing possibilities have made production difficult, opportunities for designers to create limited edition, handmade and bespoke items have soared in Iceland. Ingibjörg Gréta will focus her talk on how designers can capitalize on resourcefulness to scale while creating their design identity. Iceland’s informal design traditions can free designers to innovate, experiment and create high quality, limited edition products.
