I leave SIGGRAPH with a feeling of excitement. No other year have it felt like people talk so much about what’s close at hart for a retailer like IKEA when it comes to CG.
- Make Material move between render engines, define once render anywhere.
- Open, collaborative standard for 3D scenes like USD.
- Better High end materials, for offline use as well as compressing it to real-time renderable.
- Focus on retailers like us as the 3D commerce group in Khronos
Suddenly you don’t feel so alone anymore……as we did presenting the first time publicly at SIGGRAPH in 2013.
Feeling good leaving SIGGRAPH 2019….but already miss the energy during these 5 days meeting brilliant people….. looking forward to next year already!
PS..Thanks for bringing back the “Geek Bar”at SIGGRAPH …..it’s simply the best🎉

A year ago Chaosgroup released this video on how we work with 3D at IKEA. It’s been played 50K times now….that’s a lot for a 9min interview-stile thing!!! I’m so proud of being part of this at IKEA, with so many talented people at work!
(Some of the tech is already replaced by newer and better ways, but the team and the results are still stunning 😉
I’m off to a week at GDC, packed with meetings every day! Really looking forward to meet some really brilliant people!
And take a tour on the expo floor. Anything special you think I should look at then send a DM.
