On our 75th birthday in 2018, we celebrated with a special exhibition. And we wanted it all to fit in a flat pack, so we could send it off to anyone who was curious about IKEA. Right now it’s in a container outside our museum in Älmhult.

‘Hacking’ something means creating something new from something you already have. For the IKEA Hacked exhibition, artists and designers have used IKEA products to make completely new furniture and artworks. The only limit is their imagination!
Smart design is born when we see the world through the eyes of others. EveryBody is an exhibition about the body, inclusive design, and a simpler everyday life. For all of us.
