How do you think we’ll be cooking in 20 years?
That is a pretty cool question to ponder. What will your kitchen look like? How will we eat the food we make? There are always lots of questions about how are homes will look and function and there is never a more vital part of our home as is the kitchen. #IKEAtemporary is a temporary space that IKEA has set up in Milan for the World Expo to explore all the questions that come to mind. IKEA Expo 2015 explores in the same way the 2025 Concept kitchen, something created by students at Lund University and Eindhoven University of Technology. It’s all about looking at how technology could remove some of the barriers that keep us from enjoying everyday cooking. Self-refrigerating containers and a worktop that gives you recipe suggestions based on the food you put on top of it, are just a couple of the innovative tcchnologies that are being looked at.
And there’s IKEA HACKA, a kitchen that embraces the growing trend of modifying and customising products to make them your own. The simple outdoor kitchen makes it possible to combine IKEA products with other things you have at home (or even things you’ve created yourself) to create a kitchen that’s totally unique.
There are lots more questions to ask and at IKEA they have packed a schedule full of events, workshops, talks and cook alongs around all sorts of interesting topics related to our lives in and around the kitchen. They would love to hear from you but if you can’t make it all the way to Milan, come join in on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter at @IKEAtemporary. Or visit their website at ikeatemporary.com.
“Even more brainpower can only be a good thing. We want your thoughts, opinions and feedback on what we could improve. We believe it’s much better when you tell us how you want to live – and not the other way around. You could say that IKEA has the ingredients – but you have the recipes.” – Marcus Engman, Design manager, IKEA of Sweden.
