Taking over a single street in Tokyo, IKEA aim to prove how their products can fit into even the tiniest of living spaces…
IKEA Sukima Gallery was unveiled this week and essentially takes place in the gaps between (and even underneath) several of the buildings on the city’s Harajuku Street. A dedicated website at ikea-sukima.com reveals the location of each installation.
In Tokyo, living space is famously at a premium, so presenting IKEA furniture and products like this is certainly one way to get residents thinking about how to make use of limited room.
But at fashionsnap.com, some images of the installations were posted which, unlike the website’s glossier, art directed take on the project, show just how cramped some of these set-ups are. For some that might be one reminder too far.
