INDUSTRIELL collection

Perfectly imperfect

Created in collaboration with acclaimed Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek, the INDUSTRIELL collection is our way of turning mass-produced uniformity into products that have a beautifully imperfect handmade quality that you can see, touch and feel.  
 

Launching April 2018

INDUSTRIELL glassware and tableware

“To make the INDUSTRIELL collection, we developed new ways to work with wood, glass, ceramics and textiles to produce consistently unique products on a big scale.”

Eek meets IKEA

Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek is famous for using salvaged material to create beautiful furniture that is found in hotels and galleries around the world.

While presenting a collection at the Milan Furniture Fair, he bumped into IKEA creative leader Karin Gustavsson and the idea of collaboration began to grow.

That’s how the INDUSTRIELL collection was born.

  • “It turned out that IKEA and I had thought about the same thing for ages: to make objects feel more human and more personal while still having an industrial production process.”
