The concept of “democratic design” was introduced by French designer and visionary Phillipe Stark as “design that provides quality pieces at accessible prices.” Ikea adopted and expanded this idea around five key principles: form, function, sustainability, quality and low price.


Ikea is spreading the gospel of “democratic design” across the globe through its 300-plus stores in 25 countries and its rapidly growing internet presence. Ikea believes that “everyone has the right to a better everyday life,” and its commitment to “democratic design” is the means to achieve that.


During its Democratic Design Days, Ikea announced a number of new collaborations and product lines it is developing. Here are some highlights:
