Hi all, happy Culture Night! Celebrated to mark the birthday of our beloved, 228-year-old capital, the Culture Night features a wide array of program ranging from design to music to dance to food (for a list of design-related events, see here).

 

To mark the occasion, we wanted to share a beautiful project that celebrates the city: My Little Reykjavik. Created by multimedia architects Snorri Þór Tryggvason and Pétur Stefánsson together with colleagues Brian Suda and Alice Lavail, My Little Reykjavik is a series of paper products and framed images with illustrations.

These clever pocket size notebooks were handmade at Reykjavik Letterpress and feature some of Reykjavik’s historical buildings.

The foldable houses are also a creative feature of the product line. The folder includes six different classical buildings of Reykjavik. Building is simple and easy, all you need is a pair of scissors and a glue stick, and voilá – you are good to go.
