Design for All Seasons

t the beginning of April IKEA put on an exhibition called: Design for All Seasons. The designers of the Swedish furniture brand came to the opening and explained to guests and journalists where they found their inspiration for every item.

IKEA holds this kind of special exhibition every three years. IKEA designers express all their courageous and sometimes crazy ideas in the things they produce. The items can show us much more about design and creativeness than just usability and functionality. Can you imagine, say, a lamp that looks like a dandelion, or a chair bearing resemblance to a mushroom? Or how would you, for example, relate to a cup that is much like a plate? The designers explained that these and other ideas were taken from original Swedish traditions and nature.
