Andrea Maack on secret clubs and Bjork spotting
Andrea Maack is a visual artist and scent designer based in Reykjavik. She got a nose for scent when she exhibited different interactive art installations in the late 2000s, and today her eponymous luxury fragrance brand is now sold worldwide.
Since relocating back to her native Iceland in 2017, Maack has been working on finding a perfect spot where she could set up a studio, showroom and residential villa all in one. The Geopark Villa in the Reykjanes Peninsula in South Iceland is her latest project.
