The BASTUA collaboration unites IKEA home furnishing knowledge with Marimekko’s art of printmaking to celebrate the pleasure and joy of self-care rituals. The collection name “BASTUA” is a term used to describe sauna in Småland, a region in Southern Sweden where IKEA was founded. Self-care rituals and Nordic sauna were a starting point for the collection, and it is designed to be embraced whether you are enjoying time by the lake during warm summer months or winding down after a long day with your favourite self-care rituals.
“Collaborating with Marimekko was a natural choice for IKEA as we are both committed to enabling a better everyday life at home, and with the BASTUA collection, it begins with focusing on wellness first,” says Henrik Most, Creative Leader at IKEA. “The collaboration encapsulates the sensations of endless summers and the simple and aesthetic beauty of Nordic nature in furniture and accessories for the home.”
