throughout the years IKEA has followed the ideal of producing functional, sustainable and affordable furniture. a different approach has been taking to display their housing solution with scenarios created to demonstrate their key design concepts including sustainable material use, functionality and good form. visitors take a walk through the past and view the story behind their products embodying swedish roots. at the same time, the exhibit reflects on the present showcased inside a vast democratic home built as the an open, multi-faceted pavilion spread across two levels.
