    • ✁ THE GLOBE-US Innovation Lab brings together senior managers from different industries who are interested in sharing their thoughts and inspirations about sustainable business modelling. The central theme of this first edition: sustainable innovation as a driver for value creation. RESULTS During the interactive part of the program the participants represented four DyeCoo account teams of IKEA. DyeCoo is a small Dutch company that brought revolutionary change to the textile industry with its dying process. Simply put: it dyes textile with CO2 instead of water. Based on a specific customer profile, the groups were 22 HUIS VAN DE OCT AUTOMOBIEL 2013 BRUSSELS asked to create a value proposition for the DyeCoo product line that is in line with IKEA’s sustainability strategy. With a kit full of tools and materials the four teams created their own IKEA-prototype that they presented in a five minutes pitch. With this infograph we are more than happy to share the outcomes of this innovation lab with you. “Nice to co-create!” “More labs!” “Inspiring” “Nice concept: learning by doing.” “Inspiring, well-organized, fun.” “Good pace.” “Light-hearted, strong user-experience.” “Very good that it was companies themselves that shared.” “Innovation is about combining: it’s good to put different industries together.” “Good concept, interactive, great!” CONCEPT BLUE ESSENTIALS CUSTOMER PROFILE Catherine, the working mom Age : 39 Occupation : inbound sales employee at a car lease company (32hrs/week) Married to : Will (44), he works as a key-account manager at an insurance company Children : Roy (6) and Suzanna (4) PRODUCT High quality multipurpose reversible cloth to be used for example as a plaid for picnicking or as a couch cover.

In return customers receive a discount when buying new products. The better the quality of the used products, the higher the discount will be. The quality of the used products defines the next phase of the product life cycle: will they be cleaned and sold as second hand, or will they be recycled? MATERIALITIES Reduction of waste BENEFITS Flexibility, changeability, affordability. IKEA delivers on the promise ‘Design your own life’.
