This new addition to the DesignMarch programme takes you to the diplomatic circles.

In this concept, created by Helsinki Design Week and first launched in 2016, we invite you to the diplomats’ residences for a series of design-centred discussions.

Philippe O’Quin, French Ambassador in Reykjavik has invited two designers - Inga Sempe (FR) and Sigga Sigurjóns (ISL) for a conversation powered by a specially designed game of question cards.

Drinks and snacks will be provided and you'll have a chance to speak to the designers and other guests once the card game is finished in an informal mingling session.

Please note, because of the limited space, only registered guests will be admitted to the event. 


Inga Sempé is a French designer and constructor of technical items, who designs furniture, lamps and other design objects for manufacturers like Ligne Roset, Alessi und Baccarat. She was awarded the Red Dot Design Award in 2007.

Sigga Sigurjóns is a multidisciplinary designer and a former Professor of product design at The Iceland Academy of the Arts. In 2010 Sigridur founded SPARK DESIGN SPACE in Reykjavík. Spark is a platform for excellent design projects with a focus on local initiatives and startups.
