In partnership with IKEA Croatia, the Zagreb Design District Festival will organize the Hacking IKEA competition for the third consecutive time. The competition will take place during the first two days of the Festival, on 14 and 15 June, in front of the interested visitors. The purpose of the project is to inspire thinking outside of the box so that users can personalize and adapt furniture to their habits, needs and wishes. Competitors will be searching for new values, possibilities and inspiration using the existing and well-known products. The topic of this year’s competition is “Equality Is Better for everyone”. The presumption is that the introduction of new relations (forms, colours, structures, compositions…) in the design of surrounding can have an impact on nurturing the culture of equality in the family since home implies the polygon for interaction between all members of the family and a kind of platform to question patterns and introduce (new and better) relations. Converted objects will be showcased until the end of the Festival.
