Wednesday evenings at the Nordic House – culture and food!
We are very proud to announce Wednesday evenings at The Nordic House, which is a new and refreshing addition to the city’s cultural life in the middle of the week.
The Nordic House Design Shop: In our beautiful little design shop, you can find classic Nordic design, such as the famous Aalto vases, as well as new and exciting products from young and upcoming Nordic designers. The carefully selected collection is updated regularly for your inspiration.
Dinner in AALTO Bistro
Have a seat in AALTO bistro, enjoy amazing food and one of the best views of Reykjavik and the nature reserve in Vatnsmýrin. Food at AALTO Bistro draws on fresh, local, healthy ingredients – in Nordic style. Naturally, the fruits of the sea feature prominently, although meat and vegan options are also on offer. Menu
Exhibition – Free entrance on Wednesdays
We are proud to present THE CITY BEING, this year’s main exhibition at the Nordic House. THE CITY BEING explores various aspects of our modern cities, with contemporary Reykjavik as the main point of reference. A selection of works by contemporary artists and designers are put in dialogue with retrospective elements, tracing the imagining and making of the city across time.
Library: The Nordic House celebrates its 50th anniversary next year, and for that occasion, our library will invite guests on Wednesday nights from 7-9 PM, where interesting anecdotes about the house will be remembered and the archive opened, one decade at a time. Guests and passersby will be able to look at pictures and other interesting things and objects that have been collected over the 49 years.
Children’s library: In the children’s library, you’ll find children’s literature in seven Nordic languages and meet world famous characters like Pippi Longstocking and the Moomins. The library is also a beautiful playing area with games, giant LEGO building blocks, a small castle to climb and much more! Snuggle up with a book in one of the library’s cosy corners, play, discover and have fun!
