Whether it’s a birthday, wedding or big holiday, every celebration calls for having a few key elements in place. The space and the atmosphere set with the right lighting and decoration, the food and drink evoking everything from personal taste and mood to tradition and community, the music to enhance the moment. And then, of course, the people that make it all come to life.
In a new IKEA collaboration on celebration, some of those people – the guests of honour, if you will – are nine creatives from Chile, Colombia, and Mexico. All set to bring their own takes on celebration, gathering, and socializing around food and music to the table in a collection meant to enable and encourage it further.
“In Mexico, we love to celebrate and be together. Everything is a good occasion for gathering. And our festivities and traditions are as diverse as our inhabitants. With this collaboration, I can share the story of it”, says Marisol Centeno, designer and founder of artisanal textile and rug company Bi Yuu.
