Rated 2 out of 5 by from Inadequate locking mechanism - only secures top I bought this for my son's birthday. He said assembly was simple; was surprised that the unit just snaps together, no screws. We ended up putting 2 washers to each of the bottom door pegs (positioning the doors all the way to the top) so that both doors align and to make the right door locking mechanism work. The lock pin that elevates into a hole in the top of the cabinet is not long enough to penetrate and secure the door without the added washers at bottom/raised doors. And, the locked right-side door can be pulled open from the bottom (flimsy doors) making the cabinet not very secure. Otherwise, the cabinet is handsome and has a nice utilitarian finish to it. And, only has two small magnets to hold the doors shut. I would recommend this cabinet if locking it is not a necessary feature you are looking for....

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compliments the IVAR series well This is perhaps one of the harder IKEA pieces to assemble. It's all sheet-metal rectangles that look very similar to each other, so I'd recommend doing it somewhere where space isn't very constrained, and with another person to help. It looks like it comes with a key, but it's just this big fake-looking key that can perhaps keep a young child from opening it, but that's about it. That being said, it's useful for keeping moderately dangerous things like cleaning products or pool chemicals in, since its metal construction prevents it from absorbing odors or corroding/burning very easily. Plus, the fact that its sides are metal rather than wood, and therefore much thinner, means it actually can hold significantly more. So at only $10 more than its wood counterpart, it's actually a pretty good deal.

Designer thoughts

Designer Sarah Fager
”I really love the IVAR series and felt honored to decorate it with new functions. The charm of IVAR is that it’s so generic in its expression, that this actually becomes its design feature. So it felt important to give IVAR cabinet the same expression, but in durable metal - like the cabinets found at schools and in dressing rooms. I think the series will live on forever. Easy to buy, easy to assemble, and maximized storage space.”

Lively 50-year-old solves new storage needs

A lot can happen in 50 years. Perhaps the last five decades have seen man experience things at the most rapidly changing pace ever. When it comes to interior design, trends have come and gone, but IVAR storage furniture system is and remains flexible and adaptable. Now IVAR is solving new needs for lockable storage with a re-used metal cabinet.

The classic IVAR was launched back in the 1960s and today it continues to contribute to organization in homes all over the world. Karin Blindh Pedersen is a product developer and has taken a closer look at what people appreciate about IVAR. ”It’s a flexible piece of furniture and sort of like a blank canvas that you adapt as you like. And it’s durable and robust – if the wood gets scratched, you just sand over it”, says Karin.

A cabinet for new needs

Over the years, the need for flexibility in the home has grown and IVAR has been updated with a number of accessories that customize how you can use the storage. But something was missing. ”When we performed new studies in homes around the world, we saw how some form of closed storage was needed for things like light bulbs, batteries, paint cans and cleaning items”, says Karin. ”A lockable cabinet which is durable and easy to keep clean.” The need for lockable storage was found to be the same regardless of the size of people's homes. So the difficult nut to crack was the cabinet’s look so it would fit in, whether in a garage or in a small apartment, where IVAR is often a main piece of furniture.

Smart product development

Sometimes the solution is right under your nose and there’s no reason to reinvent the wheel. When the product development team looked at other products, they realized that everything needed was already in the range. Of course JOSEF metal cabinet and HURDAL’s lock were adjusted a little for new purposes, but there are many benefits by starting with already well-known products. ”This benefits our customers when it comes to both quality and price”, explains Karin. ”We know the designs work and we have good suppliers. This way we also save time and money in product development.”

New look for a timeless workhorse

After a number of tests and discussions with stores in all countries where IVAR solves people's storage needs, the team decided on two different cabinet measurements. The taller cabinet includes space for a mop and bucket, while you can store everything from sticky paint cans to sorted items in the shorter cabinet. ”I really like how all those boring and ugly things can be next to books and decorations – yet hidden behind a stylish and lockable door,” says Karin. The metal cabinet not only provides new functionality but also gives IVAR a new and slender industrial look. The timeless workhorse continues to deliver smart storage in homes across the world. Who knows what new needs IVAR will solve 50 years from now?
