DesignMarch, Iceland’s most important annual design festival is celebrating it’s 10th anniversary this year. It will be the largest and most significant yet, with an expected 100 or so events that will transform the most northerly capital in the world into one big venue for design.

Design Diplomacy will be part of DesignMarch for the second time.
