About the Experience

Visit a creative cluster of designers, craftsmen and creative people in the lovely harbor town of Hafnarfjörður. An old former fishing plant and freezing house has become a fascinating hub of creativity in varied fields of design and product making. 

This dynamic and innovating environment was built on the idea of creating a community of people and small businesses working in open spaces to enhance communication and collaboration between creative fields.

In all, there are twenty-eight workspaces on two floors. The upper floor hosts twelve ceramic designers, painters, and a book artist. The ground floor consists of seven textile designers, a shoemaker, wooden boat builder, a knife maker and several product designers.

Our visitors get a feeling of this creative and energetic atmosphere and the lovely former fish factory is in itself a little bit of a magical place. It is such an ideal location for this melting pot of creativity.

Whether you are an artist, craft person, a designer, maker, thinker, student or none of the above, we promise you will experience our vibrant community, get inspired, develop new ideas and gain a completely new perspective into your designs and your life in general!
