The number one venue for Icelandic design, SPARK Design Space is Iceland’s only design gallery.

With both international and local designers in the exhibition calendar (both Vík Prjónsdóttir and Salakauppa from Finnish Johan Olin and Korean Aamu Song have exhibited before), it hosts a wide array of design projects, with a specific focus on food design. The current exhibition Thrádur features jewellery design in 2 generations – by 80-year-old Dóra Guðbjört Jónsdóttir and 34-year-old María Kristín Jónsdóttir.

The gallery also serves as a design shop and a venue for design related events. Founder Sigrídur Sigurjónsdóttir is a Central Saint Martins graduate and long-time professor of product design in the Iceland Academy of the Arts.
