OMTÄNKSAM – Designed for EveryBody

There are times when we all need a bit of extra comfort and support. With OMTÄNKSAM collection, IKEA wants to make everyday life easier for everyone – and for every body. Developed in collaboration with ergonomics experts and tested by people with different needs and challenges, the products are easy to grip, unlikely to slip and great when sitting down and getting up (and much more). Also, they share a classic Scandinavian expression – designed to last.

Everyday life made easier

The OMTÄNKSAM table is scratch resistant and easy to clean. Since there is no underframe there’s great leg space.

The rounded back and seat of the OMTÄNKSAM chair add to the comfort, and the high back is great to hold on to when sitting down or getting up.

“Smart design is born when we see the world through the eyes of others. At the very moment we step back and change perspective, we open doors to new opportunities.”

- Britt Monti, Creative Leader IKEA
