FabMinge46Amazeballs goes with my matching table5
great furniture for bijou gardenGardenHavenI love this set of table and chairs. They are perfect in the summer for sitting with a coffee or lunch, enjoying the sunshine and admiring my garden. I've had mine for a couple of years and they have performed really well. They stand up to heavy rain and cold weather well although sometimes the rivets develop a little ring of rust round them. My only major problem is that I now can't fold the chairs to store them for the winter!4
Sturdy , strong, solid.Ben26Sturdy, strong, solid chair - a bit weird the way it folds , but this is IKEA , they do things differently, eh ? Great product - I got 2 of them !5
Great chairs to go with matching tableAheadHaving bought the matching table and 2 chairs and found them perfect for our small patio, we bought two additional chairs to complete our set. Unfortunately these two were scuffed along the chair backs and I hadn’t noticed in the shop but other than that we are happy with the set. It is not too ‘fussy’ and easy to clean and maintain.4
MayoWonderful colour , comfortable5
Excellent product and priceNowheremanThis is a very well made chair and at a very good price; it is quite heavy compared with similarly priced items and should last for many years. Combine it with the matching table and you have a very attractive bistro set to brighten up your garden, yard or balcony. It is also a comfortable chair. My only disappointment was that I could only buy it and the table instore and not online.5

A flexible balcony life from successful teamwork

As society changes, new needs arise in people's homes. That's when it helps to look beyond the obvious. When designer Jon Karlsson created the outdoor furniture series SALTHOLMEN, he and his colleagues found new, smart solutions all the way from the drawing board to the factory floor.  Read more
With more and more people around the world moving to cities and living in small spaces, a balcony is a valuable extension of a home, no matter how small it is. This means the balcony is often used for several activities like eating, socialising, growing, hanging laundry and storing things. That's when it helps to have flexible furniture that can be easily moved and put away. At the same time, most people have limited budgets and want to have nice looking, durable furniture at affordable prices.

Well-known materials in a new context

This was the starting point when designer Jon Karlsson began sketching for SALTHOLMEN—a chair and different tables in powder-coated steel. At first glance, they look pretty ordinary. But for designer Jon Karlsson and product developer Jonas Forssten, SALTHOLMEN is the result of a sometimes rather complicated process that required using a well-known material in a slightly new way. After 12 years of working at IKEA, however, Jon Karlsson is accustomed to work that does not always follow a straightforward path and appreciates the limitations of an assignment. "The route you take during the process is what makes it really interesting, I think. To have completely free rein can actually paralyse creativity." Already from the beginning, Jon considered the materials and manufacturing conditions and benefited greatly from all of his experiences on the factory floor. It's crucial for a low price that production is smooth and fast, so even that must be planned from the drawing board, too.

Product development on the factory floor

After the sketches, 3D drawings and models in the workshop, it was time to develop prototypes. Product developer Jonas Forssten was one of the team members on site at the factory in China. "I had contact with Jon via phone and email. My phone's camera was a hard-working assistant! The couple of men in the factory who cut and adjusted by hand, were worth their weight in gold. Despite jet lag and long days, we were fantastically effective. The creative teamwork that happens when you work together gives an incredible boost." A major challenge of the project was that the furniture would be foldable and pre-assembled. The gateleg table involved a completely new experience for the team, explains Jonas. "We know that our customers appreciate gateleg tables, but we had never seen one entirely of steel before. There was no experience to build on. Instead, we had to test and develop it directly at the factory."

Challenges lead to a new form

Untreated steel rusts over time, but SALTHOMEN is protected because all parts are powder coated prior to assembly in the factory. The chair is then put together with visible stainless steel rivets. A functional detail that Jon thinks contributes to the chair's character. "Making a chair always means that you have to remain within various parameters, but I want to see them as opportunities rather than limitations." To find really good solutions to new needs in people's homes requires strong teamwork between designers, product developers, technicians and everyone involved. It's the challenges of reality that push us to sharpen our creativity, Jon explains. "It was everyone's patience and persistent work that led to SALTHOLMEN."

Easy-care steel

Steel is durable, weather-resistant and easy to care for since it is maintenance-free. It has a powder-coating of paint too, to protect against rust.
