The functional, flexible and sustainable collection was created by a group of 14 young designers from all over the world, consisting of a range of 51 designs, created in collaboration with in-house IKEA designers. These pieces, produced using lightweight materials, have been tailored to the needs of the young dwellers that live in spaces sometimes smaller than 30m2, where all space available has to be used to its full potential.
Focused on movability and multi-functionality, these affordable and cutting-edge designs include a corner chair and set of three cushions by Ebba Strandmark, a hanger bookshelf and a corner cabinet designed by Keiji Ashizawa, and a bureau by Polish designers, Krystian Kowalski, Pawel Jasiewicz and Maja Ganszyniec. Next to these up-and-coming fresh faces of design, more established names also contributed to the collection, including products by French designer Matali Crasset ready for collectors at just £100, as well as by Brooklyn-based Rich Brilliant Willing, wall decor by Spanish Tomàs Alonso and a side table that has a built-in light and magazine rack by Tomek Rygalik.
Defined by IKEA as “the boldest collection ever made”, this playful and colorful limited 8th edition of the PS collection will be available online and in stores from the 1st of April across the US. For more information, keep an eye on the IKEA website. – Vittoria Toffoli
