Democratic design comes from the IKEA perspective that everyone has the right to a better everyday life. The Democratic design idea steers everything we do. By creating products that meet all five dimensions of Democratic design we will be unique - having a product range our customers and we feel proud of.
Design for everyone
Democratic design brings good design to the many people by providing well-designed home furnishing solutions, with great form and function, high quality, built with a high focus on sustainability and at an affordable price.
Finding the right balance
For us, good design is the right combination of form, function, quality, sustainability and a low price. Our product developers and designers have to find the right balance of all these elements when the design process begins. It’s a challenge that keeps us innovative.
Suppliers play a very important role
Very early on in the design phase, our product developers and designers work with a diverse team of technicians, manufacturers and specialists. This special partnership helps keep our prices low and find the latest techniques to create products the IKEA way.

We’re pleased to announce that RIGGAD has been presented with an iF award - one of the world’s leading design awards. Chosen from more than 5,000 entries, the lamp was presented with with an iF label in the category Lighting.
“iF awards outstanding achievements in design. We are very honoured,” says Björn Block, Range Manager for Lighting and IKEA Home Smart at IKEA of Sweden AB.
Many people see charging their mobile phone as a chore. So IKEA developed RIGGAD, a lamp that charges your phone while you work. The result? Less stress and fewer cables. The work lamp has a charger puck hidden inside the lamp base. Just put your phone on the plus sign, and that’s it.*
“I wanted the charger to blend in easily to make charging a natural part of your home,” says David Wahl, designer at IKEA of Sweden AB.
*Some phones will need a cover to make them work. VITAHULT charging covers are available at the IKEA stores.
We began learning about the production of furniture 60 years ago. We had just begun to design our own furniture and needed to learn how best to match the possibilities of the supplier with the needs of the customer. Bringing the two closer together was how we would keep prices low.
