IKEA Museum ‘Textile Playground’

'Textile Playground' was a 2018 installation at the IKEA Museum, conceived and designed by PJADAD to allow visitors to explore different aspects of textile design and IKEAs extensive textile archive in a playful way that encouraged interaction and creativity at every stage of the user journey.

Combining touch screen applications, realtime projection systems and a custom web application, PJADAD designed and produced a visitor experience that was tactile, reactive, and bridged the gap between physical interface and digital art in a way that highlighted IKEAs commitment to future technologies, sustainability, and accessible and playful design.

The interactive installation was extended online via ikeapatternmachine.com, a website built to host the drawing application and online gallery. By connecting the physical installation to an online experience, the patterns in the museum are displayed in the online gallery, and the patterns created online are projected in the museum.
