A festival of Icelandic Design and Architecture, DesignMarch, is taking place in Iceland from April 24-28, 2024.

In advance of this year’s DesignMarch, one of last year’s most popular and creative design programs —#PizzaTime — stopped into the Icelandic Ambassador’s Residence to make freshly felted wool “pizzas” made from leftovers from the Icelandic textile industry.

Ambassador of Iceland to the United States, Bergdís Ellertsdóttir, said “This is our first… design test in DC, and I hope that we will connect to those in the design scene here.”

She added, “Today we [in Iceland] have so many great designers. There is a great design scene in Iceland, and we are even exporting design! That is an achievement.”
