IKEA Hacks Some Of Its Most Popular Furnitures In Latest ‘Lyskraft’ Collection
By Izza Sofia, 09 Aug 2018
IKEA has taken an unprecedented step to embrace its hacking community by redesigning its own furniture designs.
The company engaged Dutch designers Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings from Scholten & Baijings to add a twist or two to some of its most popular items. By embracing “IKEA Hacking,” the brand celebrates the creativity and individuality behind these remakes.
The ‘Lyskraft’ collection—based on the Swedish word for luminosity—has seen a revolutionary take on two of IKEA’s most popular items, the ‘Klippan’ sofa and ‘Poäng’ armchair.
The ‘Lyskraft’ line features trendy and colorful elements from Scholten & Baijings, fused with unique styles and textures without compromising on reliability and stability.
The ‘Poäng’ armchair now comes in three different designs colored with coral, blue and bright yellow. The ‘Klippan’ sofa range sees two new quilted covers and a pastel series. Geometric legs have also been added to the design and the new exclusive quilting technique adds a touch of hipster to the refreshed sofa.
IKEA’s creative leader Michael Nikolic explained that the company has always regarded its products for the general masses as open to re-purposing, modifying and customizing to suit individual styles and personalities.
Scholten & Baijings further designed a range of glassware made from pressed glass, napkins and melamine trays for the collection.
The designers have managed to embed their own signature creativity and playfulness into the IKEA designs with its essential characteristics of functionality, quality, design, and value.
The new collection is scheduled for release this month, alongside IKEA’s ‘Gratulera’ collection.
