Students attempted to design a bedroom of the future, based on infuture hatalska foresight institute’s cultural, social, and environmental trends. Young designers addressed the problems of energetics, nomadism, and space minimization. Moreover, they tackled the issues of intimacy and sex. The final projects provided various examples of spaces and objects. These included: a zero gravity sleeping chamber, sleeping mats, and a living mattress.
The final effect of the workshops in the form of a model exhibition was presented at the IKEA POLAND conference at Tecza Studio in Warsaw, as well as at Gdynia Design Days 2018.
