looks good but!Hill toptable and chairs look good but after a few weeks of very little use the ring that secures the table is rusting and the paint has started to chip and show signs of wear. It was extremely poorly packed when it arrived, I have photos of the parcel before I opened it.3
Paint is poordah19Set is really comfortable to sit on and a fantastic size for a balcony but the chairs came with paint scratched of. Obviously in light of what's going on at the moment, I can't return it to store (as guided by the website) so thought I might as well use it since it's an unknown when stores will open. However in the space of the 3 weeks of the set arriving, the paint on the table is now chipping away on the ridge. Table has been covered up well with a protective cover so just disappointed that the quality clearly isn't great. Shame since it's not the cheapest product either in terms of IKEA either.2
Outdoor diningWellington13Bought this set as a gift for my daughters new home. She loves it. Great colour, great design and a decent size for al fresco dining. Another great Ikea buy.5
Table and chairsJajacko1971A great table and chair set, especially if you have limited space. Strong and sturdy and folders away when not in use.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.

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."

Material

What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.
