Material matters

What is banana fibre?
A banana plant can be up to nine metres tall, and the plant dies once it produces fruit. The trunk is chopped down and the outer parts are cut into smaller pieces, which are dried in the sun. The dry pieces are then made into narrow strips that are braided or woven into furniture. There are many different types of banana plant, which is why the fibres can shift in colour. We like to blend them - it gives our products more life.

Designer thoughts

Designer Maria Vinka
"'You can actually sit on it,' is what most people say when they try out IKEA PS GULLHOLMEN rocking chair. I wanted to design a chair that was more than a chair, and that made me think of children's furniture, which often stimulate several different senses. What I arrived at was a small chair that rocks. It was an obvious choice to make it with banana fibre, because the banana plant dies once it has produced fruit and is not usually used for anything. I think it makes the chair even more beautiful and nice to sit in, knowing that it's made of a waste material."
