Hello all, we hope your as excited for the weekend – and the Christmas calendar – as we are!

Today’s Christmas Calendar is featuring jewelry designer Fiona Cribben, chosen by Helga from Helicopter.

She has a big wish this year to “design” Santa, no less than a new kitchen designed by architects Margrét Hardardóttir & Steve Christer from Studio Granda.

What a beautiful letter!

She has been dreaming about a minimal concrete kitchen. Similar to the studio on Hverfisgata 71 a designed by Studio Granda, which was nominated this year for a Icelandic Design Award.

See more Architectural wonders by Studio Granda on our blog.


Every day up until the 24th, we ask our friends – designers, curators, architects and other wonderful folks – to answer the question:

“Which Icelandic designer/architect would you like to give you a present, and what would it be?”

The chosen designer/architect will then be the next one to answer.

Be sure to return tomorrow, when we will reveal Studio Granda’s wish!
