First opening its doors in 2022, WOW!house proved itself deserving of its name from the start, wowing thousands of visitors and garnering universal acclaim. Built from the ground up in the Design Centre’s magnificent Design Avenue, its first alumni of interior designers and room sponsors demonstrated the amazing things that could happen when the industry comes together.

Its second iteration in 2023 reached new heights with world-class names conjuring more rooms of wonder, and a Legend Room and a Terrace added to the floorplan. Visitor numbers soared, and in just two years WOW!house cemented its place as a summer fixture on the international design calendar.

These incredible experiential spaces, brought together by the best in the business from all corners of the globe, will shape aesthetics and influence design directions, while the wider project stands as a remarkable testament where creativity and design excellence are not only celebrated but encouraged.

WOW!house’s originality, invention and beauty will continue to amaze as the show moves into 2024.
