What is your favorite Icelandic design?

There are quite a few I find absolutely brilliant and some of them have already been mentioned here in the Christmas Calendar. However the ones I favor for this Christmas are the books about the Icelandic flag by Hörður Lárusson, both the original ‘The Flag‘ and the new ‘The National Flag of Iceland – Use, Respect and Conduct‘.

 

Who would you like to give it to this Christmas?

I’d give Sveinbjörn Pálsson a couple of them for being a kind man.

 

And who should be the next to answer these questions?

Hörður Lárusson perhaps?

 

– Gunnar Vilhjálmsson

 

 

This December, every day up until the 24th, we will ask a local designer the following questions:
