IKEA ART EVENT 2018

IKEA ART EVENT 2018 Limited edition collection. What happens when you mash up the world of manga, designer toys and comics with the age-old techniques of handmade Swedish art glass? We wanted to find out. 

The eight crystal glass figurines in the IKEA Art Collection 2018 show what happens when you mash up the world of manga, designer toys and comics with the age-old techniques of handmade Swedish glass art.

Contemporary artists. Traditional Swedish glass art. For the IKEA Art Event 2018 we invited eight contemporary artists, representing different artistic expressions, to each produce a crystal glass figurine. Most of the artists had never worked in glass before, and were keen to embrace the challenges and possibilities the material presents.

Launching April 2018 - LIMITED EDITION

To produce the handmade figurines, the artists collaborated with some of the most skilled glass masters in the world, based right in the middle of Småland, Sweden - not far from the very heart of IKEA. The result? A collection of eight crystal glass figurines that are playful, expressive and accessible - with a whole world inside of them.
