This was one of my favourite afternoons in Copenhagen and a privilege to be in such an inspiring place. We visited during the Wegner exhibition and loved the detail provided throughout about the background to his works and tradition of design in Denmark.

Having previously visited the Centre a few years ago I was disappointed to find that all of the exhibition had moved to the Danish Design Museum in a different part of the city. I didn't get any warning about this until I got to this building. Poor piece of information design! There is nothing here other than a trendy cafe.

Despite my brand new guidebook's review, the design centre is closed bar the coffee shop, and has been for over a year. Don't waste your time;it's a coffee shop.

The "chair" exhibition was fascinating and the fact you could sit in some as you were moving through the exhibit meant it was even more interesting. At present the roof is being repaired so some of the exhibits are closed.

This was close to our hotel and we were surprised how much larger inside it was than it appears from the outside. Yes, there are lots of chair and furniture designs and yet many more things that just tickle your eyeballs. There's a great cafeteria and also a wonderful gift shop.

The building has a really stylish exterior but it is in fact a cafe with offices, not a design museum.
