My guest this week is Carla Cammilla Hjort of Space 10. Space 10 is Ikea’s future living lab. There they are working on how to design and create a better Ikea for the future. They research topics like food production and vertical farming, as well as the future city. I visited the space in Copenhagen and there was a vertical farm they were hacking together using Ikea products, a section dedicated to VR and conversation interfaces.
We discuss one topic that is near and dear to me, food and what the future of food looks like and what that means for Ikea’s iconic Swedish Meatball, how Ikea is trying to design portable homes for refugees, and design the home of the future.
