Ikea's Democratic Design Through the Decades
The International Design Museum in Munich, Pinakothek der Moderne, just launched a debut exhibition dedicated to democratic design, which features the work of Swedish furniture giant Ikea. The themes of the exhibit include design process, the DIY principle of Ikea, and sustainability and ecology. Furniture from the 1950s through present day is on display. According to Ikea, furniture design has to "be beautiful, good, and well-priced. Design must not be elitist; rather it must be affordable for everyone."
