SAMMANKOPPLA limited collection

The SAMMANKOPPLA limited collection is displayed in a hallway lit only by the camera’s flash bulb and one of the string of lamps.

SAMMANKOPPLA limited collection

Created in Bangkok, ready for the world

No matter where you live, more and more people are moving into small city spaces than ever. That’s why we’ve worked with Thai fashion designers Greyhound Original to develop SAMMANKOPPLA, a limited collection of furniture and home accessories that blends Bangkok street style and creative re-purposing processes with our apartment-living expertise.

A portrait of Bhanu Inkawat and Vitchukorn Chokedeetaweeanan, designers for Thai fashion brand Greyhound Original.

The Greyhound story began in the 1980s, when four friends with a passion for living well decided to open a clothes store together. Fast forward several years, and they’re now selling their designs from new locations in Hong Kong, Shanghai and London – and their food from the Greyhound Café in hometown Bangkok. They believe that life should be simple, but never boring – describing their brand’s key concept as “Basic with a creative twist”.

A SAMMANKOPPLA pillow stands in a dark room. The white triangle pattern on its side reflects the camera flash.

You’ll find cushions shaped like this in markets throughout South-East Asia – they’re the perfect shape for resting your back on.

Much of the collection features bold patterns inspired by Bangkok’s urban landscape and Greyhound’s graphic fashion sensibilities. The houndstooth design on this bag is one found in traditional Thai weaving – but here it’s made using modern materials.

Want an easy way to freshen up your chairs? Try this hoodie on for size. It even comes with handy added pockets – perfect for your TV remote or phone.

To celebrate its launch, we’re asking – what does your chair wear?

Use the hashtag #whatdoesyourchairwear and show us how creative you can get dressing up your own furniture, and we’ll feature our favourites on social media.

Coming soon to IKEA stores and online on 6 August 2020
