Designer thoughts
Designers Pia Amsell and Barbro Berlin
"We designed VARDAGEN knives inspired by sturdy old-fashioned kitchen knives with a robust and timeless feel. Because cooking is a craft, we gave the knives honest, simple lines that give good grip and easy handling. Thanks to the design, they have many years of use in them and blend easily in with other kitchen utensils. But most of all, we want these knives to encourage cooking and create lots of delicious food memories."
Smart functions
Functional and well-balanced
All the knives in VARDAGEN knife series are sturdy with a traditional and timeless feel. There’s a knife for most needs and functions, like a bread knife, paring knife, and chef’s knife. The knives are designed for balance, easy cleaning, solid grip, and good handling. Sharpening the blades is easy, so that you can use them for a long time.
Everyday quality
Sharpness that lasts
VARDAGEN knife series is made for many years of kitchen use. They’re made of molybdenum-vanadium steel, which makes the blade hard and strong enough to flex without breaking. It’s this special, durable type of steel that keeps the knives sharp for longer so that you can cut, peel, and chop all day long. The sturdy shape is inspired by old-fashioned knives, for a timeless and traditional look.

Designing for the tastes of people around the world

In Swedish, VARDAGEN means “every day”, which is just how the cooking and eating products with that name are meant to be used, no matter where you live. The series is specifically designed to cater to the international trend toward transculturalism—a big word that basically means global eating and cooking habits are a lot more similar than you might think.

“Consumers have access to cultural diversity in cooking and eating from all over the world,” explains Ina Tidbeck Sjöblom, who works with the team that creates IKEA’s cooking and eating products. “They want to taste the best of all cultures.” People are adventurous too, with 69% saying they like to let their taste buds travel, trying new and different cuisines. “Which means that it’s not only in Asia that we need to have eating products for sushi,” Ina says.

Creating products for all our differences (and similarities)

Transculturalism is about figuring out how to make differences into similarities too—a trick VARDAGEN does without anyone even noticing. How? The collection is designed so single products work in multiple ways. Take the egg cup for example. It’s a staple on many European breakfast tables, but it can be something else too. “We did the egg cup in a shape that it’s more like a very small dip bowl,” explains Ina. “So it’s also for Asian eating, you know this small bowl where you put your chili paste and other condiments.” The small VARDAGEN bowl is another example of transcultural design. It’s the right size and shape to be the all-important rice bowl for Asian markets, and it’s just right to be used as a side-salad or cereal bowl in other parts of the world.

Answering the global demand for durability

“We haven’t done anything like it before,” says Ina. “It’s huge.” VARDAGEN is the biggest collection of traditional cooking and eating essentials IKEA has ever released. And thanks to the versatility of the products, the series is uniquely suited to the global market—catering to the needs of eaters living from Hong Kong to New York and everywhere in between. One thing people all over the world seem to agree on is the importance of durability. “We know from all the studies and research we do that people don’t want to buy and throw away things, they want to buy something that lasts,” says Ina. “So, we chose to work with honest and durable materials that are long-lasting.” VARDAGEN is made from durable and sustainable materials, like glass, porcelain and stainless steel. That means, just like the name VARDAGEN suggests, they’ll be useful every day for many days to come.
