'Us & Our Planet: This Is How We Live'

May 09,2022 - Last updated at May 09,2022

IKEA proudly presents Us & Our Planet: This is How We Live, a book produced in collaboration between PHAIDON and IKEA.

Together they have teamed up to explore one of the biggest challenges of our generation: Sustainable living.

Us & Our Planet looks at the life at home of twelve everyday people, including activists, artists, athletes and gardeners as well as young families across the globe. From Mexico to Moscow, Bali to Beirut, the book shines a light on the small things one can do to make our world a little better.

“This is an inspirational study of the home, as the most important place on earth and how we all, with small steps, can make the world a better place,” Tina Petersson-Lind, communication manager, Inter IKEA Systems B.V. Since the 1950s, IKEA has conducted home visits all over the world to find out more about the way people live and investigate how daily life at home can be improved.

This feedback informs product development and is mirrored in new generations of the IKEA range. Inspired by the IKEA’s life at home visits, Us & Our Planet presents case studies of twelve diverse individuals and families around the world. The book also highlights some of the IKEA’s most iconic products born from this approach over the past 70 years.
