With the introduction of twelve new products for four manufacturers DesignMarch 2013 was bound to be an exiting event. Most of the products have been in development since last summer, a relatively short period for so many designs. The last two weeks were hectic with so many small details to sort out and take care of - this is the most rewarding time of the process, seeing the move from drawing/prototype to a final product. Still, there are details in some of the items that need further attention so the job is not entirely finished yet.
It was a real pleasure working with skilled craftsmen towards the common goal of presenting quality Icelandic furniture at the show. We all learned a lot from the process.
With an estimate of almost 2000 people attending the opening night in Harpa and a large number of visitors throughout the whole show it was a great success.
So now it is just a matter of carrying on and looking forward to DesignMarch 2014!
AXIS presented six new designs - Stemma a new line of office tables and screens - Einrúm (english: Solitude) high-back sofa with a low work table - Bylgja (english: Wave) a multi purpose table on wheels - Símaskjól (english: Phone shelter) a wall mounted phone-booth and the Lauf (english: Leaf) stackable multi purpose chair.
