Dezeen at IKEA Festival: visitors try out the carpet slide plus more highlights from Tuesday morning

We're broadcasting from the IKEA Festival, which kicked off today at Milan design week. Find out what you missed this morning in our first highlights movie, which features a carpet slide and a demo on smart lighting.

IKEA's Let's Make Room for Life festival is now underway in Milan's Ventura Lambrate district. This morning's programme of events started off with yoga, followed by a seminar on the brand's new smart lighting range.

Visitors are enjoying the carpet slide and feasting on the Swedish furniture giant's signature meatballs. See the full programme at IKEA.today/festival.

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.
