Students from Swiss design school ECAL/University of Art and Design Lausanne recently developed an exhibition in collaboration with IKEA. Avoiding the temptation for excess, the goal of their project was to make fifty essential pieces of furniture for a basic apartment. We spoke with two of the students to find our more about their experience.
DELAKTIG is really about exploring the future of seating and bedding as we know it today. At IKEA we believe that things simply become better if you work on them together. We were proven right on this when putting the open platform in the hands of some of the future designers at the Royal College of Art in London.
