The exhibition ‘IKEA Hacked: Our Products. Your Ideas.’ consists of IKEA products hacked by 30 artists, architects and designers from all over the world. Centered around the phenomena of ‘hacking’ or altering of IKEA items, the exhibition gives insight into how hacking is almost a lifestyle today, where individuals create an emotional bond with something that they have built and re-built themselves.
The overall lighting design approach in the exhibition is simplicity, but effective. Each theme has its own characteristic lighting design with a single governing principle in order to create a subtle scenography for the specific communication. In this way, light is the only source used to enhance a certain mood or tell a specific story that complements the installations of that specific theme.
