Dezeen at IKEA Festival: interactive sound art and an urban farm feature in highlights from Tuesday afternoon

In our second broadcast from the IKEA Festival at Milan design week, we explored an open-source urban farm design and watched an interactive music performance by Teenage Engineering.

As the first day at IKEA's Let's Make Room for Life festival draws to a close, we've rounded up the afternoon's highlights from the festival, which is taking place in Milan's Ventura Lambrate district.

After a morning of yoga and smart lighting talks, creative tech team Teenage Engineering took to the stage with an interactive electronic sound performance.

We spoke to illustrator Kevin Lyons about customising IKEA Furniture as he began painting a huge mural, which he will be working on all week.

We also caught up with Simon Ca who are behind the GrowRoom installation exploring the future of sustainable food. See the full programme at

The festival takes place from 4 to 9 April in a 3,500-square-metre warehouse at Via Ventura 14 in Milan. Dezeen will be broadcasting live reports from the festival, so stay tuned for more video highlights across Dezeen, as well as our Facebook, Instagram and Twitter channels.
