There’s a brand new limited-edition collection launching soon from IKEA and I’m pretty over the moon excited about it. their new VIKTIGT collection is the result of a creative collaboration with Ingegerd Råman, one of Scandinavia’s most well-known glass designers and ceramists. According to Ingegerd, the collection “is about craft, it’s a project between the craftsmen and the designer.” Besides her classic glassworks and ceramics, there are wonderful new furniture pieces made from bamboo and natural fiber. The collection includes benches, stools, side chairs, baskets, rugs, a couple of great-looking large woven lamps, and bowls in different sizes and braided lids – but you’ll need to hurry and scoop up what you love – the limited collection is available at IKEA only for a limited amount of time, and launches in stores beginning the week of May 23.
As part of VIKTIGT collection, IKEA is also launching a book about Ingegerd Råman, one that i’ve got to add to my collection of design books. in it’s nothing but it’s still something, she welcomes you into her Swedish homes and work studios in Stockholm and Österlen – a well-known destination for creative minds. The book tells the story of Ingegerd, her long and successful career as a glass and ceramic designer, and her view on design and creativity. Because it’s about more than just the every day – it’s also about the simple beauty of Scandinavian design.
