IKEA’s projections for Autumn’s Formex event are centered around “Nordic Space”. This theme is meant to defy the darkness of the approaching months by using natural and durable materials, contrasted by textured and shiny surfaces. As people will soon tend to spend more and more time indoors, the home becomes our place to retreat and reload. Creating areas of softness with pillows and other textiles the body can get comfortable while the brain takes a break. By pulling together natural colors like clay and sand, a warm yet monochrome atmosphere appears to complement the high shine of metal or glossy accessories and the sleekness of home technologies.
