The collaboration explores light and the feeling of warmth, with solutions such as light and home furnishing in their form and their emotional value in how they are placed within our space. As part of a long-term goal, IKEA is looking into a shift from light that serves a specific function in the home to light that has an emotion impact and contributes to our wellbeing too. As a brand rooted in the Nordics, we understand the importance of light, especially going into Autumn when the days get shorter, and our need for warmth grows. VARMBLIXT is a part of the journey in creating sensorial and emotional experiences which impact how we feel and the atmosphere of home.
“The first-ever sneak peek of the VARMBLIXT collection spotlights a meaningful collaboration where we hope to inspire the many on the impact of emotional lighting,” says Henrik Most, Creative Leader at IKEA of Sweden. “Together with Sabine's artistic vision of design, we are excited to bring a collection that will truly add a sense of warmth and duality to our homes,” he adds.
VARMBLIXT is designed to inspire a new interest in how light can transform our homes' look, feel, and atmosphere. The preview at the IKEA Festival at the 2022 Milan Design Week focused on two key product reveals, and IKEA will announce the larger collection reveal within the coming year.
