“Powering the Future” nominated as Project of the Year

{text}

"Powering the future" has been nominated among three other projects to Reykjavik Grapevine Design Awards.

"This new exhibit at Ljósafossstöð outlines the progression of electrical power, from creation to mass production. “Without using language, they communicate knowledge in a lively manner,” said the panel. “It’s scientific data presented in an exciting and entertaining manner, both visually and in terms of context.” Ljósafossstöđ is one of the country’s oldest hydroelectric power stations, and this interactive centre contains not only written information but also sound installations and kinetic light sculptures."

Words by Hannah Jane Cohen.

The exhibition was designed and fabricated on the 50th anniversary of Landsvirkjun, the National Power Company of Iceland. The exhibition was designed by Gagarín in collaboration with Tvíhorf Architects.

The Reykjavík Grapevine Design Award will be awarded  Friday, March 17, at Oddson at 20:00. 

Awards will be given in the categories of best product, best line, best clothing design and the project of the year.
