YPPERLIG

The YPPERLIG collection was a collaboration between IKEA, Rolf and Mette Hay, the bold Danish furniture designers behind HAY.

“It’s fair to say that HAY and IKEA are two very different companies. But when we started talking to IKEA it became very clear that we shared many perspectives on design.”  Rolf Hay, co-founder of HAY

The beauty of basics

Meet YPPERLIG, a collaboration between IKEA and the Danish design company HAY. Mette and Rolf Hay are the husband-and-wife duo behind the design company HAY. Founded in Copenhagen Denmark in 2002, HAY focuses on creating furniture with an eye for modern living using sophisticated industrial manufacturing. The couple draw inspiration from places such as architecture, fashion and art, resulting in pieces that have a straightforward, functional and aesthetic design.

YPPERLIG celebrates the beauty of basics and ranges from sofas and coffee tables to smaller accessories like an updated version of our iconic blue bag.

Where old meets new

The designers behind the YPPERLIG collection wanted to update the traditional Scandinavian plank table. Using the latest board-on-frame technique combined with solid wood legs for extra stability, the result is an ash veneer table you’ll want to linger at long after dessert.

One shot, one chair

The chairs in the YPPERLIG collection are made with an injection mould using a single shot of liquid plastic. The shot takes about 30 seconds, and out comes a comfortable, sustainable, strong yet light chair. It’s even certified for public use!

Everyone likes a good makeover

Mette Hay dreamt of giving the blue IKEA bag something new while still honoring the original. So without changing the size or material she worked with the colours and the weaving patterns, giving the bags a nice spash of HAY.
