Our Approach:

Since 2018 we’ve worked with IKEA to gain a deep understanding of how life at home is changing around the world. We’ve helped transform this insight into stories, actions and experiences to make home a happier healthier place for all, no matter where and how you live. 

From our changing relationships with places and spaces inside and outside the home, to the erosion of privacy, the annual project focuses on original research insights, then translates them into meaningful ideas for action.

The Power of Privacy

Through our global research we identified 5 core emotional needs of the home: ‍Privacy, Security, Comfort, Ownership, Belonging. Each year, we intend to explore in more detail each of these emotional needs. In 2019 we focused on the need for privacy at home, wherever it might be.
