25m2 Syria at IKEA

25 m2 of Syria is an apartment at IKEA. But it is not one of the "picture perfect" homes that are usually on display. The apartment is built as a replica of the real home of Rana and her family of 9 in Damascus, Syria. The iconic IKEA-posters and price tags tell the story of how people live -  caught in the crossfire of Syria’s civil war. And most importantly: On every little tag we let you know how you can help!


25 m2 of Syria is an apartment at IKEA. But it is not one of the "picture perfect" homes that are usually on display. The apartment is built as a replica of the real home of Rana and her family of 9 in Damascus, Syria. It was important to get the public involved, and to really understand where the help was going
For two weeks the installation was an initiative to promote Norway’s annual fundraising event “TV-aksjonen”. This year all donations went to the Red Cross, and people living in war and conflict. IKEA partnered with the Red Cross to promote the cause.

The iconic IKEA-posters and price tags told the story of how people live. Lacking food, medicines and access to clean water. And on every little tag we let the public know just how they could help.
