The collection is comprised of furniture, lighting, textiles and accessories that fit seamlessly into the modern home creating spaces that encourage socialising. The focus of the YPPERLIG is the living room.
“We’re always trying to challenge the way traditional IKEA furniture is made,” says Marcus Engman, Head of Design at IKEA Range and Supply. “This collection is no exception. YPPERLIG has helped us explore new materials and production techniques, allowing us to gain new and innovative ways to achieve the end product we’re after.”
IKEA believes that the new products will be shining examples of Democratic Design.
”The idea for the collection was to do design that is totally clever, but understated at the same time. There are a lot of pieces with new constructions, new ways of doing things, but it is design that still blends in,” Marcus says. ”We would like people to live with these things for a long time.”.
Estimated launch of YPPERLIG is October 2017.
