IKEA: Q&A + fika with Leonie Hoskin

  A big Swedish hello!

A big Swedish hello!

This evening I attended a Q&A with Leonie Hoskin, Deputy Range & Design Manager of IKEA. Originally from Melbourne Australia, Leonie started her career as a Communication and Interior Design Co-worker at IKEA 35 years ago. Since then, Leonie has worked for IKEA all over the world and now lives in Sweden working with some the world’s best designers and product developers.

The evening was spent gaining an insight into the life of one of Australia’s best design expats and the chance to hear about the latest news on the IKEA range and design trends — direct from the source. There was also some room for a little FIKA (traditional Swedish coffee, pastries, and sandwiches) which was just a treat.
