IKEA Hacked by Lucas & Lucas - Artists in Residence at IKEA Museum Sweden
// IKEA HACKED by LUCAS & LUCAS
The exhibition IKEA Hacked at the at IKEA Museum in Älmhult (Sweden), showed works by international artists, architects and designers – all using IKEA products as raw material. LUCAS & LUCAS were part of the exhibition as Artists-in-Residence from July 23 to August 19, 2018.

 

In a temporary workshop in the museum we produced a variety of hacks. Inspired by the wooded countryside of south Småland, we explored the phenomenon of mutating. The result: a series of objects made with IKEA products, that seem to have a life of their own.
