Three ÖVERALLT rugs in different colors, sizes and materials.
Scandinavian design meets modern Africa
The story of ÖVERALLT began a few years ago when IKEA teamed up with Design Indaba, a global creative network and online publication, to learn more about what is happening in the contemporary African design sphere.
This turned out to be the start of a collaboration – the first of its kind. In-house IKEA designers teamed up with ten different African designers and artists within the fields of architecture, fashion, sculpture and furniture design. Together they explored modern African rituals in urban environments. The results? Limited edition collection ÖVERALLT.

“This is how design makes the world smaller
and brings people of different cultures
closer together.”
