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.

Carina Ellegaard collaborated with Konomi Noguchi on a piece entitled Folded, inspired by the Peacock chair by designer Hans Wegner. ‘We started off by studying his chair, analysing the areas that we could redesign with an approach to textile.’ The result showcases the merging of fabric and wood that draws correlations with the original but retaining its own original aesthetic.‘We morphed the textile to show the memory of the sticks at the back in the original. My partner is Japanese so there is an element of origami to it because we really wanted to merge not just old and new ideas together but also Japanese and Danish expressions in one piece of furniture’, stated Carina Ellegaard.
