Belgrade Design Week is fantastic! It is a conference with a great international reputation.   I have heard so many friends, professionals and peers who said it was one of the best conferences in the world, and something you must do! So, I had no doubts in saying yes when Jovan asked me to do it 6 months ago. Belgrade Design Week is different, it’s a bit crazy, and the special passion and the energy is what makes it really good!

Tony has become Wallpaper’s editor in chief in March 2007. Before that, Tony has been working for Wallpaper as a creative director. Tony’s achievements at Wallpaper* include the introduction of a critically acclaimed new design direction; creating the brand identity of the ground-breaking Wallpaper* City Guides, published by Phaidon; and the design of 2006’s most collectable magazine of the year, Wallpaper’s 10th anniversary issue – a tour-de-force celebrating the most successful year in its history.

Prior to joining Wallpaper* in 2003, Tony spent six years as art director of Condé Nast’s GQ, where he twice won PPA Designer of the Year. He was previously art editor of the Sunday Times Magazine and has won a roll call of design honours. Before he embarked upon his illustrious career, Tony graduated from Central St Martin’s School of Art with a First Class Honours degree.

During the 10 year history of Normann Copenhagen, we have learned that passion for design and architecture is strongly connected to people and not places. Coming from a part of the world where DESIGN is almost part of your DNA and every household has a selection of Design Classics, does not guarantee that passion is found.   When coming to Belgrade for the BDW 2009 we found a dedication and passion at the highest level. We can only be jealous that such events, created with passion and real interest to push the viewers and visitors to the next level are not more commonly found in Denmark. That again is a tribute to the great efforts found behind BDW and we hope to be part of your events in the years to come.
