REYKJAVIK BY DESIGN

In Reykjavik, hidden behind brightly painted doorways and tucked behind tall tin homes, a carefully curated world thrives. This is a city where design takes precedence, where everyday life is alive with decorative details. On Wednesday, I turned off of the small main street and headed into Spark Design Space, a museum and shop showcasing those pivotal points where creatives and craftsman insist that life and art intersect. Infused with distinct Icelandic style, objects, tools, and colorful curios came alive. So too did my imagination and an inspired spirit.
