Challenge: During a graduate school course on prototyping, two classmates and I reimagined the IKEA shopping experience. Our task was to develop one of our proposed solutions into a physical prototype at scale.
Outcome: We designed and prototyped an “IKEA Mini”—a small pop-up storefront with a few display rooms, to be located in malls, airports, or college campuses. Visitors try out IKEA furniture without the hassle of navigating a complex store, and order items for delivery using an app and bluetooth-connected price tags.
