Thomas Sandell for the new IKEA PS collection

Designer Thomas Sandell speaking about his design process: “I love to design directly at the producers on the factory floor. At some of the factories in Romania and Poland they showed us what they could do and as usual, I asked to have a look in the room where they keep old samples & prototypes. A perfect treasure of ideas and opportunities. Based on this, I sat in a corner and produced dozens of products based on each producer’s capability.” Some of the results of this process is a bookcase and trolley for the new IKEA PS collection.
