Simon Caspersen is part of the founding team and Director of Communications of SPACE10, a future living lab on a mission to design a better and more sustainable way of living.
SPACE10 is a future living lab on a mission to design a better and more sustainable way of living.
With projects ranging from vertical farming to the future of meatballs, the team at the Copenhagen-based research lab works with a global network of collaborators to not only research what the future brings, but also prototype it.
The results are open-sourced and available to anyone; which is especially remarkable since IKEA, the Swedish furniture giant, is the main sponsor behind SPACE10.
In our conversation we talk about how SPACE10 got started, how their community-based approach convinced IKEA to support them, and why Simon doesn’t believe in 300 page innovation reports - but rather in creative artworks like a photo series on the future of meatballs that went around the world.
