Marking the 100th anniversary of Hans J Wegner and Børge Mogensen the Royal Danish Academy proudly presents the opening party of “Morphology”. Under this title the academy presents 50 young design talents in Ventura Lambrate during Design Week Milan 2014.
Inspired by the works of Mogensen and Wegner, students from the school were teamed up and asked to combine the traditional type of a stick-chair with upholstery in order to “morph” the stick-chair to a contemporary expression. By applying upholstery to a traditional wooden frame the students developed a wide range of innovative designs that represent a contemporary interpretation of danish furniture design. Another group of students was in charge of the exhibition design and coordination, which showcases a selection of 14 chairs.
