IKEA This is How We Live Exhibit

A book about the small steps we can take to make the world a better place

At IKEA, we’ve been making home visits all around the world since the 1950s. These visits have given us so many valuable learnings into how people live.

Inspired by these home visits, the book Us & Our Planet, published by Phaidon in collaboration with IKEA, explores how people across the globe today are creating happier, healthier, and more sustainable ways of living. Together we visited homes, workplaces, and shared spaces from Mexico to Moscow, Bali to Beirut – shining a light on the small things we can do to make the planet we share a little better.

The book itself is structured around six thematic chapters: Time, Space, Food, Play, Rest, and togetherness. Through these themes, we share sustainable living, ideas, innovation, and the reality of everyday life – all to inspire and show that together, even small actions can add up to powerful changes. We hope it will inspire you, too.
