IKEA x UTS Future Living Lab
UTS and IKEA have established a new collaboration, providing a local design hub for aspiring young designers, thought leaders and the community. The design hub, known as IKEA x UTS Future Living Lab, is located on the UTS campus in Ultimo, Sydney.
The collaboration brings together IKEA’s expertise with academics and students from the UTS Product Design and Interior Architecture programs. The partnership also includes design organisations, designers, as well as the community to create new ideas to produce exhibitions, prototypes and events addressing the unique needs of the Australian home.
In 2019 UTS Central will open its doors to students, staff and the community. UTS Central will be a vibrant student hub and faculty space at the heart of the campus. As well as the new UTS Library, the building will include a scholarly reading room, a wealth of student study spaces, and an inviting, food court that will open onto Alumni Green and be accessible to the general public. UTS Central is the final significant capital development project to be delivered as part of the billion-dollar-plus UTS Campus Master Plan.
