“Big cities and no space, that’s a common theme worldwide. Then you need to find creative ways of utilizing the unused space. On one rooftop in Ginza a 11th floor space is buzzing with life all year round, thanks to the Ginza Honey Bee project. Volunteers look after the beehives and in the summer the bee colonies grow up to 13 hives and the volunteers can harvest up to 30kg of honey every year. Bees are thriving in urban environments thanks to the abundance of the flora seasonal resources, no chemicals and very little natural predators. We had the privilege to taste Sakura honey - cheery blossom. Projects like the Ginza Honey Bee show that cities are evolving towards an awareness of the natural surrounding environment.” #ikeatoday #lifeathome #productdevelopment

“Hej! My name is Siri and I’m working as a freelance designer at IKEA. We are currently working on a collection where we are curious about space. This curiosity has brought us to Tokyo where we firsthand will experience the true meaning of urban small space living. For a couple of days we are living in a capsule hotel to learn about how much space you need to call a place home. Check out the following images were you can see where I’m sleeping tonight, and make sure to follow our story the next couple of days. #ikeatoday #productdevelopment #lifeathome #design #research

Assemble it. Pickle it. Eat it. At the IKEA Food Lab during Wired Live the visitors could try out the new way of pickling food. By vacuuming the veggies in the bag they are instantly pickled in only 30 seconds. Different herbs and sauces can be added to complete the tasty vac snack! Now the veggies are preserved for several months or even years (when stored in a cool place). A great way to reduce food waste in the future. @ikeafoodservices #ikeatoday #ikeafood #ikeafoodlab #wiredlive

Today, more than one billion people lack access to electricity and the lack of accessibility to common water and communications grid brings the number even higher. Together with WIRED UK and their extensive network of creatives IKEA will embark on the exploration of independent off the grid solutions that will allow more people to be less dependent on existing systems. For the coming year work sessions will take place in order to find solutions together and to activate the collective brain ending in a collection that will be released in 2019.
