IKEA has unveiled its latest PS collection aimed at young urban dwellers, consisting of furniture and homeware made from recycled wood, plastic and glass.
The Swedish brand worked with 21 designers to create the 2017 PS ranging of 60 products, which can be described as “high design values at a great price”.
Numerous experimental manufacturing techniques of IKEA’s factory floor have been used to create the designs. These techniques include recycling processes for IKEA’s own packaging and manufacturing waste, which is utilised for a homeware series that Ikea described as “no waste” products.
Product developer Anna Granath has used recycled PET plastic bottles and wood to create a set of kitchen cabinet doors called Kungsbacka.
Form Us With Love from Stockholm has designed another seat for the brand this year. The chair “Odger” has 70 per cent recycled plastic and 30 per cent renewable wood. It can be bought in 2017 in white, blue and brown, with wood flakes visible across the surface.
Iina Vuorivirta produced these vases are made by re-melting and re-shaped glass.
It is possible to see the rest of the collection below.
