Got dull so quicklyRobyn46Usually I feel my ikea purchases are a good value but this paring knife (which was wonderfully sharp when I got it) was dulled after three days of normal use. I found it really strange...I don’t think I did anything that would have caused this.1

Little dangerousMarylu14Omg is the favorite of my kitchen, I love it, the only inconvenite is that it is very easy to turn upside down (knife up) and it is very dangerous, I do not know that the finish is very round on the top of where it grabs and that makes to turn up alone!4

Designing for the tastes of people around the world

Do you sometimes cook dishes from other cultures? Then you’re part of an international trend called transculturalism. It basically means that global cooking and eating habits are a lot more similar than you may think. How can we cater for this trend? We designed the VARDAGEN series with products that can be used in multiple ways. In Swedish, VARDAGEN means “every day”, which is just how the products are meant to be used, no matter where you live.

“Consumers have access to cultural diversity in cooking and eating from all over the world,” explains Ina Tidbeck Sjöblom, who helped create the products. “They want to taste the best of all cultures, which means that it’s not only in Asia that we need eating products for sushi.”

Creating products for all our differences (and similarities)

The VARDAGEN products are designed to turn differences into similarities. Like the eggcup. “We did it in a shape that it’s more like a very small dip bowl,” explains Ina. “So it’s also for Asian eating, you know the bowl where you put chili paste and other condiments.” Another bowl has just the right size and shape to be a rice bowl in Asia, but it can also be used as a side-salad or cereal bowl.

Answering the global demand for durability

VARDAGEN is uniquely suited to the global market—catering to the different needs of eaters. One thing people all over the world seem to agree on is the importance of durability. “We know from all the studies and research we do that people don’t want to buy and throw away things, they want to buy something that lasts,” says Ina. That’s why VARDAGEN is made from durable and sustainable materials, like glass, porcelain and stainless steel. That means, just like the name VARDAGEN suggests, they’ll be useful every day for many days to come.

Designer thoughts

Designer thoughts

"We designed VARDAGEN knives inspired by sturdy old-fashioned kitchen knives with a robust and timeless feel. Because cooking is a craft, we gave the knives honest, simple lines that give good grip and easy handling. Thanks to the design, they have many years of use in them and blend easily in with other kitchen utensils. But most of all, we want these knives to encourage cooking and create lots of delicious food memories."

Designers Pia Amsell and Barbro Berlin

Function solution

Functional and well-balanced

All the knives in VARDAGEN knife series are sturdy with a traditional and timeless feel. There’s a knife for most needs and functions, like a bread knife, paring knife, and chef’s knife. The knives are designed for balance, easy cleaning, solid grip, and good handling. Sharpening the blades is easy, so that you can use them for a long time.


Sharpness that lasts

VARDAGEN knife series is made for many years of kitchen use. They’re made of molybdenum-vanadium steel, which makes the blade hard and strong enough to flex without breaking. It’s this special, durable type of steel that keeps the knives sharp for longer so that you can cut, peel, and chop all day long. The sturdy shape is inspired by old-fashioned knives, for a timeless and traditional look.
