Last Friday I have seen a superb presentation by IDEO on the new Concept Kitchen 2025, a very interesting project prepared with collaboration with IKEA.
How will we behave around food in 2025?
Ten years in the future, the world will be a very different place. (Read how). What does that mean for us, for the design of kitchens, and the people who make them – and how will we be able to live a sustainable life at home?
IKEA collaborated with IDEO and design students School of Industrial Design at the Ingvar Kamprad Design Centre at Lund University,
and the Industrial Design department at Eindhoven University of Technology and created Concept Kitchen 2025.
One of the outcomes of this collaboration is the Concept Kitchen 2025 exhibition at IKEA Temporary, open from April 9, Milan.
The exhibition is just one part of an ongoing investigation by IKEA into how people’s relationship to food is changing. It serves to tangibly show what we might be doing in 2025: how we’ll be growing our food, storing it; how we’ll be cooking, eating, living and working in the kitchen.
The dining table has always been the heart of the kitchen, a place for preparing food, and eating it.
However, the future of technology and its impact on our lives enables designers to improve the quality of life and as the world changes, so will our needs. Therefore, the table of the future will be designed to do so much more:
it’s our preparation surface, hob, dining table, work bench and children’s play area.
I feel very inspired with these new designs and creative ideas and hope so do you 🙂
Nice posting.Great idea.Thanks for sharing it with us.
