Hans J. Wegner was the ultimate chair designer and one the world's most prolific designers. He paved the way for the international breakthrough of Danish Design in the years after World War II. So many of his designs are still reproduced and the originals are sought after. Exploring the logic and potential of wood, he created many of the prototypes in his workshop and before the days of computers, he created complex, aesthetic forms with natural materials. Now the Design Museum Danmark celebrates the 100th anniversary of Hans J. Wegner’s birth with the exhibition “Hans J. Wegner – just one good chair.”

For the 5th time, five creators compete to design the most imaginative wallpaper of tomorrow. It's all too common to see a room with clean white walls or painted out in a single colour block. Wallpaper allows surfaces to have more personality through texture, pattern and colour and this annual exhibition celebrates just that.
