Back in its fourth year running, the IKEA Singapore’s Young Designer Award 2017 grand finals exhibition features the top five designs based on the theme “The Climate Action Challenge”.

The exhibition showcases innovative ideas and concepts from local and international students, all of which aim to help people living in Asia better cope with challenges resulting from climate change.

These include housing, water and energy solutions to help guard communities’ well-being without impacting the environment negatively through design.

Here is a sneak peek into the Top 5 concepts:
- A piece of furniture that can be used as a floatation device during floods
- A cooling system that converts hot air into a cool breeze in living spaces
- A drainage system that turns water into electricity
- A portable, protective surface that protects homes from floods
- Blinds that could replace the need to use air conditioning at home
