Welcome behind the scenes at IKEA product development

Storage units with a big heart

What started as an extensive collaboration with IKEA markets three years ago has now taken a beautiful shape in the form of the BAGGEBO. The storage range for the living room is now available in selected markets. We sat down with Bonnie Yu and Johanna Jelinek to know more about the range and how they brought together innovative designs and light materials to create a truly affordable family of living room storage products that suits all pockets, spaces and layout ideas.

Recharging for a more sustainable future

A lot of customers tend to believe rechargeable batteries are complicated and expensive. So, we challenged ourselves to offer our customers a simple solution. IKEA has created a long-lasting rechargeable €1 battery that’s ready to use. If that’s not enough, these batteries also reduce waste as they don’t need to be disposed of frequently, thereby keeping the planet clean. We sat down with Jimmie Eriksson and Gizem Harut to learn about IKEA focus on rechargeable batteries and how will these influence IKEA products in future.

Tobias on innovating showers to make a difference

Nearly one-third of the world’s population may face water shortages by 2025. In a household, it’s showering that consumes the most water – about 40 per cent. Hence, IKEA is innovating around water-saving solutions. The latest is a water recycling shower solution, which has just been through the first round of home tests. For Tobias Svanberg, Development Leader at IKEA, this is an important step to enable customers to make a big difference in their water use at home.
