A place to find inner peace and outdoor pleasures

The “forgotten” forest lies between Drottninghög and central Helsingborg. One of our focus areas during H22.

Connecting a past exhibition with the future

At the forest we like to show that urbanization is not the opposite of nature but rather is closely connected. Building on the lineage of H55 we would like to create the opportunity for the many to explore the small outdoors. During H55 a low cost, flat pack weekender housing project was created just outside of Helsingborg. As a nod to that heritage, IKEA will provide a new kind of outdoor camping opportunity at H22, in sustainable materials and with a self-sufficient energy and water system.

We are curious about

  • Let more people discover all aspects of sustainable outdoor living
  • Dramatise the IKEA vision of how to ’live big in small spaces’
  • Connect the different parts of the H22-exhibition
  • Work together with art and design schools

Our spots at H22


This area will deal with the ‘future of home’, exploring and displaying the future of retail and manufacturing. The Ocean pier will be the key touch point for IKEA at H22.


Visitors to the forest will have a deep and positive experience of a new way of outdoor living and connection to nature. The Forest will be developed in collaboration with Universities, architect and design schools.


Where urban areas transform from closed spaces to shared spaces, there will be a new marketplace, a community kitchen and urban farming, delivering to the above mentioned.
