Dezeen had teaming up with Ikea to broadcast its annual Democratic Design Day event– in Sweden on 8 June-  that included news on the brand’s upcoming releases and designer collaborations. The Dezeen readers were able to watch all of the talks and presentations from the furniture giant’s Democratic Design Day live from 9.30am UK time. The event goal was to make the company more transparent by sharing some of its behind-the-scenes research and processes (in Älmhult, Sweden – home of the first store). Let’s get to know more about it!
