In this film, the Red Dot Award-winning designers talk about what inspires their design, walk us through the IKEA prototype workshop and show us the embryo to the Wedge Dowel.

Meet brother-sister design duo Knut and Marianne Hagberg in their home away from home – the IKEA Democratic Design Centre.
