IKEA Unveils Indoor Vertical Farm 2017 London’s Design Festival
London England's Design Festival unveils a six day pop up innovation lab by IKEA entitled, SPACE10.
The lab promoted an indoor vertical farm.
SPACE10 promotes a solution to the problem caused by climate change and the inefficiencies of the global food production system. LED lights allow for year-round indoor growing, while smart sensors measure, control, and learn over time how to make crops grow healthier and faster. The future looks to the possibility of transferring this data from the farm to a domestic interface such as google home.
