We are a family of four who after many years of living in London decided to move back to Iceland to enjoy a greater sense of freedom and to spend more time outdoors. We live in Reykjavik.

Sigríður is the Director of the Icelandic Design Museum, a former professor of product design and founder of design gallery Spark Design Space. Halldór used to advise banks and large corporations on crisis communication and media relations but now lives an unstructured life.

Place to Read is partly inspired by the wish to live an interesting life with our kids, to encourage them to read and to spend time outdoors.
