Anknyta: IKEA Collaboration
Expanding an IKEA couch into a nursery for new families in small spaces.
Exhibited at the 2017 Milan Furniture Fair.
Invited by IKEA and Tom Dixon to envision new uses for their Delaktig couch, co-designer Danielle Connelly and I designed seven items that clip into the couch's frame to create a nursery for new families in small space.
In addition to ergonomic nursing pillows, a bassinet, a changing table with storage, rounded pillow shapes, and a mobile, we also proposed alternate finish options.
After the baby has grown, each piece can convert into a new purpose, giving them a "second life."
