Hæ/Hi Saman/ Together opens in Seattle

October 3rd, 2023

Saman/Together: An exhibition by Hæ/Hi: Designing Friendship featuring objects and experiences that encourage us to interact, work, play, or relax together. The exhibition opens in Seattle on October 5th.

With the shared objective of creating dialogues between their respective creative communities, Hæ/Hi Designing Friendship is a collaborative platform for studios located in Reykjavík and Seattle, WA.

What is togetherness? Is it friendship, community, connectivity, or bridging cultural gaps? Eighteen interdisciplinary design studios from Reykjavík and Seattle, WA interpret the meaning of “together” through personal experiences, ideation, and material exploration.

Each project is a collaboration between Icelandic and Seattle based studios, making both the process and results an expression of what together means.

Hæ/Hi is supported by the City of Reykjavík and Business Iceland.
