Welcome to the urban living room
Welcome in! In to the urban living room of ÖVERALLT – the limited edition collection designed in collaboration with ten African designers from the fields of fashion, sculpture, architecture and furniture design. Together with IKEA they’ve explored different modern lifestyles and rituals in urban parts of Africa.
So, whether it’s about taking the time for a shared meal in the middle of a busy week, saying hi to a stranger, or even pausing for a moment of reflection, ÖVERALLT will hopefully inspire towards new, better rituals and habits together.
Uncomplicate the dinner party and throw an informal block party? The round ÖVERALLT table and accompanying curved benches make for the perfect base. Both made out of solid eucalyptus, the bench’s soft curve and inviting design allows you to arrange several benches for new, exciting meetings; form a circle around the matching table, or why not one long, curved seat? Either way, there’s always room for more.
Like with all ÖVERALLT products, the bench and table have been inspired by different modern lifestyles in urban parts of Africa. In this case, it’s the Kenyan ritual of taking the time to eat together – no matter how busy one’s life might be.
Dress the bench with ÖVERALLT textiles for an even comfier seat. The graphic, bold patterns, partly inspired by the African elephant, are designed by artist and architect Renee Rossouw and self-confessed textile nerd Sindiso Khumalo. Available as napkins, cushions, a quilt and bed textiles.
