What would you like to hear and see during DesignTalks 2024? Open call till October 16th!

October 4th, 2023

The signature event of DesignMarch, DesignTalks will take place on April 24, 2024. It is the 15th version of the event, which has established itself both  internationally and locally.  It is held in the Harpa Concert Hall, and has been sold out in the past years to a diverse and enthusiastic audience of some seven hundred.

We are now reaching out to the design community for ideas and suggestions of both topics and specific speakers for DesignTalks 2024. We also ask for a short argument for your suggestions, which will be fed into a brainstorming session of a diverse group of professionals.

DesignTalks is curated by Hlín Helga Guðlaugsdóttir, in collaboration with the team of the Center for Design and Architecture. The event showcases the influence, role and potential of design and architecture, aiming to put the profession in the context of current challenges and social debate, but also thinking further and higher; "What else can design do?" 

The open call closes October 16th. Please send your ideas and suggestions to info@honnunarmars.is

The event has enjoyed an array of fantastic local and international speakers. To name a few, Bjarke Ingels, Katharine Hamnett, Liam Young, Winy Maas, Snøhetta’s Kristian Edwards, Henrik Vibskov, Google Creative Lab’s Robert Wang, Studio Swine, Calvin Klein, Daisy Ginsberg, Jonathan Barnbrook, Eley Kishimoto, Jessica Walsh, IDEO’s Paul Bennett,  Ilkka Supponen, Marti Guixé, Jersey Seymour, Dezeen’s Marcus Fairs, Anthony Dunne of Dunne & Raby, Marshmallow Laser Feast, Marije Vogelzang, architect Anders Lendager, Aamu Song og Johan Olin from Company, and many more.
