The many sides of Ingvar Kamprad

Ingvar Kamprad

“To get the whole job done you have to know the details – that’s my philosophy.”

Are you curious about Ingvar Kamprad? Would you like to find out more about him? In this exhibition, you can discover him from five different perspectives. You’ll get to peek inside his office, meet Ingvar together with his family and learn how he became an entrepreneur. You’ll also find out about how he planned for IKEA to last forever, and finally about his charity work.

If Ingvar Kamprad was with us today, he would question the whole idea of an exhibition about him. Why me? To him, the future was far more exciting than the past; the shop and factory floor were far more exciting than office work. He would probably also give you a hug, before rushing off to discuss some new idea he’d just had.

The many sides of Ingvar Kamprad opens 18 February 2019 and is a permanent exhibition at IKEA Museum.
