The Growroom
Room for nature



Locally grown food and self catering are essentials in sustainable future. But how is that possible in a world of urbanization? The answer could be The Growroom. Created at IKEA’s external future living lab, SPACE10, by architects Sine Lindholm and Mads-Ulrik Husum. The Growroom envisions a greener future and sparks conversations about how we can bring nature back into our cities.

The first version of The Growroom was presented at the art and architecture festival CHART 2016. But SPACE10 didn’t feel it made sense to promote local food production and then start shipping The Growroom all over the world. In order to encourage people to build their own urban farm locally, SPACE10 has released The Growroom as open source design.

Explore The Growroom outside IKEA Museum 17 June to 15 September.
