Global furniture megastore IKEA taps British designer Tom Dixon for an urban farming collection that will allow individuals to be in charge of the production of their food. As the hype around micro and modular farms is increasing and digital tech is giving us the option to look after produce in our own homes, this collaborative project really comes as no surprise.
The Tom Dixon x IKEA project will make affordable gardening tools and products available to the urban consumer. These designer-friendly offerings are scheduled to be available globally in IKEA stores in 2021.
The farming collection will not only motivate and inspire individuals, but it will also empower them to be more in charge with their daily nutritional intake. Moreover, the ability to grow food and medicinal plants in one's home surely saves time and money as well.
