DESIGNBOOM is partnering with IKEA to offer our readers the opportunity to watch LIVE the DEMOCRATIC DESIGN DAY 2018 lugano keynote event. the event will take place in switzerland on september 14th at 10:00am local time, and will host an impressive line-up of speakers who will reflect on the following theme: how to navigate an uncertain world through design.
global warming, scarcity of resources and social tension are among the issues that will become existential threats if left unresolved. these enormous challenges present an opportunity for design, as a solution-oriented and holistic principle, to play a key role in shaping our reality.
by continuing its efforts to make the company more transparent, IKEA will also explore themes related to how we live and design the spaces and products that constitute our home and everyday life, addressing its main pillars: accessible, affordable, sustainable and functional design.
