Icelandic Museum of Natural History´s exhibition Water in Icelandic Nature has been awarded the much-coveted Red Dot: Best of the best as part of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2019 in the categories of "Interface Design and User Experience". Only entries that win over the jury with their very high design quality and creative performance receive this distinction.

The exhibition provides a comprehensive and innovative insight into one of the most important resources of Iceland, the water, that fosters diverse life and will be the key to a flourishing future in the country. The exhibition which is close to 400 sqm in size was designed by Þórunn S. Þorgrímsdóttir as head of design and exhibition curator.
