The OMTÄNKSAM collection

There are times when we all need a bit of extra comfort and support. With the 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). They also share a classic Scandinavian expression – designed to last.

Seating with support

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.

Dressing made easy

The OMTÄNKSAM shoehorn is extra-long and helps you put your shoes on while standing up. Being made of metal, it’s a sturdy support that won’t bend.

Say goodbye to slippery baking

The OMTÄNKSAM mixing bowl has a silicon lid which can also be placed underneath to stop the bowl from slipping – making it great to use with just one hand.
