In the past, art was considered to be something to be observed from afar in a museum or gallery. Today, the idea of ​​art is changing; many artists also work as designers, creating everyday objects that can be used.
According to Henrik Most, creative director of IKEA , the intention is to show that being an artist or designer does not imply that you have to stick to one sector. Think that today you can work in various fields; This new paradigm has had a profound impact on both the design and art scene.
IKEA ART EVENT 2021 seeks to celebrate the sense of wonder caused by the fusion of these fields and bring gallery art into the home. To do this, he has collaborated with some of the most imaginative artists and designers : Daniel Arsham, Gelchop, Humans since 1982, Sabine Marcelis and Stefan Marx.

How is this sixth edition?

The sixth IKEA Art Event is a limited collection that aims to break the border between art and functional design. It presents everyday objects that are placed, turned on and off, but also break the rules of the game and welcome the amazement that art awakens .
Driven by their curiosity, the creators have chosen recognizable objects and put an artistic twist on them. They have changed the idea of ​​what a clock, a lamp , a flashlight, a blanket, a vase or a painting really is. Each of these objects has its own vision to elevate the ordinary to the extraordinary.

Humans since 1982 fuses art and design to create subversive everyday items. The duo's works raise questions about the acceleration of technology and its dual nature, refusing to label themselves as artists or designers.
Your contribution to the IKEA ART EVENT 2021 follows this line of thinking. They have taken several drones, a modern technological object associated with surveillance, and placed it in an aluminum display case to look like a collection of butterflies. Original? Judge for yourself.

Sabine Marcelis is motivated to get to the essential core of a concept or material. His designs often have a minimalist quality to emphasize the specific properties and effects of the materials used.
The designer was inspired by the torn canvases of the Italian painter Lucio Fontana and created wall lamps by experimenting with cutting and folding the paper. They come in two different sizes and can change their hue in five colors.

Stefan Marx is a German artist and illustrator who wants to bring joy to the home through art. That is why he has chosen to create a vase and a blanket, something that can be used and admired on a daily basis.
Like much of his work, the two articles are brimming with emotional sentences: " I'm so so so sorryyyy" , on the vase, and " I wait here you forever as long as it takes" on the blanket; phrases the artist scrawled in his notebook after seeing the message in graffiti on a wall in London.
