IKEA Green Corner

Self-initiated project

In this self-initiated project I worked in a very international team: a Thai student, an American student, two Chinese students and two German students. We were from different countries, but one common thing in our flats was our IKEA furniture. During our talks, we were surprised by how big IKEA’s influence was. And so does its responsibility.
The aim of this project is to build a sustainable production and consumption system for the worldwide furniture company IKEA and their customers. The whole project started with material study and innovation. During the course of research, the outline of the sustainable system was progressively filled.

IKEA Green Corner is composed of three parts: the Return System, IKEA Friend and a Showroom.
