Colours, sizes, angles, volumes, packaging and logistics. There are lots to get through when a team from IKEA meets up with Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek for a product review. Together they will adjust and fine-tune INDUSTRIELL, a collection of items that are smart, functional and mass-produced – and equally imperfect, tactile and unique.
He’s the uncrowned king of skilled craftsmanship and unique scrap wood furniture, but although Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek is famous for his cupboards and tables made of salvaged floorboards and old planks (and lots more) he would prefer it if the world got better at building things that last rather than settling for recycling. Meet the designer collaborating with IKEA to create, the INDUSTRIELL collection.
