Sturdy storage from solid wood
At IKEA, we work hard to keep prices down. One way is reducing the number of production steps. This helped making HEJNE shelves an affordable buy. As much of the production as possible is done right where the timber is felled. But keeping prices low is one thing. The real trick is to be sustainably minded, too. In the case of HEJNE, it was easy. What helps make the shelves more affordable, also makes them more sustainable.
The key is to use more parts of each tree and to cut transportation costs by producing where the tree is sourced.
Sourced from sustainable forests
"The first part is harvesting the timber from responsibly managed forests, and then it’s on to the sawmill," says Jesper Gunnerling who helped source the wood. The outer sections of the log are what we use to make HEJNE. The price for these parts is lower, without losing the benefits of solid wood. "There's no difference at all in strength," Jesper says. "But furniture makers don't always use this type of wood because it has these natural markings in the timber where branches have come out from the trunk."
Strong and straightforward storage
Solid timber is so strong that each HEJNE unit can be used to store heavy loads, like a garage worth of tools. There's no paint or extra fittings, just practical and strong solid wood shelves to make sturdy, unpretentious storage, ready for years of service around the home. That’s likeable, don’t you think?
What is solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful and renewable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood.
