Comfort without the extra padding

For KNOPPARP sofa, less is more. We’ve stretched the fabric over the metal frame, making the need for foam unnecessary. Using less material, yet keeping it comfortable and sturdy.

An easy-to-carry innovator

All IKEA products have affordability as a key part of their design, but we create certain products from the beginning to be especially so. We call them "breath-taking items" or BTIs. "We'd tried to make a BTI sofa before," product developer Jerry Svensson explains, "but never got the price right.” So when creating KNOPPARP, the team had to try something completely different. Who would’ve thought that the inspiration would come from a trampoline?

So, where is the money spent when making a sofa? “The biggest expenses come in three parts,” says Jerry. “The wood needed to make a frame, the fixtures you need to put the sofa together, and the foam to make it comfortable."

A jump in the right direction

Walking home one day, engineer Gerd Rodhe could see his neighbour's kids stretched out relaxing on a trampoline. He realized that stretching a fabric between a metal frame would make a comfortable seat without expensive materials. Jerry picks up the story. "We started breaking down what we needed to make a sofa without adding a high cost to the final price. We landed on using a metal frame, the trampoline-like seat, and to cut down on foam we developed a fabric cover that's quilted for comfort." Also, most of the screws were swapped for metal parts that can click together making the sofa easy to assemble.

Light, easily carried – and sustainable

KNOPPARP should be easy to transport, too. "It became almost like a competition to work out different ways to divide it so the packaging became smaller,” Jerry says. We ended up with a packaging light and small enough to make it easier to bring home. Jerry's proudest moment with KNOPPARP though is its sustainability. One part of this is that we’ve used as little material as possible, but the sofa is still strong and durable and will serve you for many years. "It’s almost completely recyclable, too, making it a real innovator for more sustainable sofas in the future."

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

“Just as comfortable as lying on your back on a trampoline! Once we got the idea of using the same technology as in trampolines for KNOPPARP sofa we were able to develop the form very quickly. The really big challenges came later. Besides the attractive design, the sofa should also have a low price. Be good from an environmental perspective. Be packaged so smartly that it could be taken home on a bus. And be easy to assemble, robust and easy to keep clean. The result is a sofa that exudes honesty – what you see is what you get.”

Designer Nike Karlsson


What is recycled polyester?

When we create products from recycled polyester, PET bottles and other sources of polyester get a new life in products like textiles, storage boxes, kitchen fronts and even lamps. When using them, you get to enjoy exactly the same quality and function as with virgin polyester products. And naturally, they’re just as clean and safe in every way. And perhaps the very best part – you contribute to using less new raw materials too.
