IKEA’s innovation lab SPACE10 will be hosting a pop-up in Shoreditch for six days during London Design Festival. The event explores how the spaces of tomorrow—which are expected to be even more crowded—can be designed for affordability and sustainability.
“By 2050, the proportion of people living in cities will have risen to 70 percent. And as our urban environments grow bigger and more crowded, we need to create meaningful spaces for everyday living that are both sustainable and affordable.”
“[At the pop-up], we’ll ask how we can best design the spaces of tomorrow; how different materials and textures change our perception of space; how augmented reality and other emerging technologies might change the way we experience space; how to empower the many people to build their own spaces; and how spaces can stimulate social interaction.”
The SPACE10 Pop-Up will be held at Shoreditch, London, from 18 to 23 September 2017. Find out more over at the event page.
