IKEA's Everyday Experiments are devoted to looking at the ways technology of tomorrow will reshape the way people live at home and Forever Meadow is a concept that turns floor surfaces into never-ending gardens. Thanks to augmented reality, IKEA's SPACE10 lab and experience design studio Pitch Studios created an experience where feet control the flowers that blossom.
Inspired by the stress-relieving technique of meditative walking, Forever Meadow has the potential to make living spaces not only more serene but also playful. As a person walks throughout their home, flowers and grass grow based on algorithmically generated organic elements.
Whether through decor or plants, people are eager to bring elements of the outdoors inside and this concept promises to turn living spaces into peaceful zones for retreat.
