Design Orgy Smackdown: Ikea vs. Apple

I could NOT resist an infographic comparing the lives of the brains behind two of my favorite designer / retailers. Check out the comparisons between Ikea’s Ingvar Kamprad and Apple’s Steve Jobs. It really is a fascinating read. My corporate office is 10 minutes from both an Apple Store and an Ikea store. Swedish meatballs and lingonberries for lunch! My home office is littered with Apple and Ikea spoils. I am typing this post on my Apple Macbook Pro while sitting on an Erland chair. Can you say “product placement?” Even with the subtle anti-Jobs sentiment reflected in the facts and timelines, it is till Very Cool Indeed:

Hat tip to The Next Web and 9gag for the fun.
