Organised in partnership with the Design Museum in London, the exhibition Home Futures explores the radical domestic visions of the 20th century and asks: what happened to the future? The exhibition premieres in London on the 7th of November and will make its way to the IKEA Museum in Älmhult next spring.
We believe in the power of co-creation which has led us to this unique collaboration with one of the most exciting design museums operating today. Home Futures gives new perspectives on the themes that are important to IKEA and the future of life at home.
In the exhibition you can see prototypes by leading architects and designers from around the world alongside the latest innovations in domestic living. Have yesterday’s fantasies become today’s reality?
Discover more than 200 objects and experiences including important and rare works by Ettore Sottsass, Joe Colombo, Superstudio, Archigram, Alison and Peter Smithson, Hans Hollein, Jan Kaplicky, OMA and Dunne & Raby.
Also featured is ‘One Shared House 2030’, by the IKEA-funded ‘future living lab’ Space10. It tackles one of the big trends on the horizon – shared living. As a first step into the product design journey, it gives us a sense of what an ideal co-living space could look like.
Here are highlights from the London exhibition.
