Want to know the future? Look at the past!
That’s the basic idea behind the exhibition ‘Home Futures’ at Ikea Museum Älmhult, made in partnership with the Design Museum London.
In the midst of emblematic positions such as the work of Ettore Sottsass, Superstudio, Archigram, Hans Hollein, Ugo La Pietra and OMA - some of them eerily topical even today - OpenStructures exhibits its ‘Family of Objects’. It consists of products for the home that have a second, third or fourth use planned into their DNA. Next to these original objects by Atelier Ternier, Studio Minale Maeda and Disarming Design from Palestine, new hacks by Raw Color and OS_Studio show the future potential of dis- and re-assembled building parts into new functions and compositions.
Curated by Anna Sandberg Falk, Eszter Steierhoffer and Justin McGuirk
