With the inspiration to redefine the way we live at home, IKEA’s everyday experiments with its external research lab SPACE10 have curated 18 separate digital experiences under its new web-based platform called Everyday Experiments, with each using technologies including augmented reality, virtual reality, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and spatial intelligence to give a different perspective to the customers about their living space that is important in the current era due to the increasing influence of technology in framing our lifestyle than ever before.

Being one of the first brands to drop an AR app with Apple in 2017, letting people plop down virtual sofas and armchairs in their own living rooms. Some of IKEA’s augmented reality-based projects are Technocarpenter that uses a combination of AR and VR to help you fashion your own chair using machine learning, to suit your needs; a design prototype, developed by Amsterdam-based studio Random providing you personalized solutions on how to upcycle your damaged furniture, depending on the damage. Another feature is a speculative design prototype using LiDAR to fill the voids in your house with inflatable elephants to help you visualize and measure the space.

Being just prototypes only, are not expected to be constructed any time soon but “It might turn out that some of these will become more concrete and will be adapted into the larger IKEA ecosystem, but first and foremost, it’s really about inspiring people, designers, and technologists” says the creative director of SPACE10, Van De Poel.
