The will was to bring the concept of artwork from the wall to the floor... putting it to the mat!

"Art must be accessible, from every point of view, to the majority of people around the world. At IKEA we create art collections simply because we believe in democratic art. According to a common preconception, art is nothing but oil paintings and sculptures. But why can't we take art and apply it to a rug? IKEA Art Event 2019 revolves around this"
