IKEA design partnership

ECU's Interior and Spatial Design course has an ongoing relationship with international furniture company IKEA, in which students compete to be selected in a design competition by the company, which assists students by displaying and receiving feedback on their work, as well as through a compete grant. The relationship between ECU and IKEA provides students with hands-on, real-life experiences and a level of public exposure that is invaluable for students. The authentic nature of the competition also encourages student innovation and helps them become aware of costs, industry needs and logistical issues, as well as inspiring them to strive for excellence in design.
