Contemporary design projects enter in a dialogue with pieces from the Points of View exhibition at The Culture House.
This mirroring between design and a spectrum of artistic forms from archive drawings to photography enlightens deep trends in Icelandic culture, such as the mapping of nature and the creativity emerging from limited resources.
With works from designers Thomas Pausz & Gardar Eyolfsson.
