Fresh from their collaboration with Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek earlier this year, IKEA have just unveiled a lifestyle collection in collaboration with LA-based fashion designer Chris Stamp and Polish designer Maja Ganszyniec. Exploring the changes and needs of young homes today, the SPÄNST collection features furniture and clothing for active, urban lifestyles.
The IKEA SPÄNST collection is a response to the needs of younger, aesthetically conscious consumers. With the help of Chris and Maja, IKEA took inspiration from ‘concrete, nature and organic shapes’, using industrial style to reflect street style for a collection of storage pieces and items like IKEA’s first ever skateboard, basketball and net.
SPÄNST is aimed at those who take pride in their clothes and footwear and allows them to show them off in the home. The 32-piece collection is characterised by dark, metallic colours and minimalist designs, with a focus of putting personal possessions on display.
This is no more evident than in pieces such as an exposed clothes rack, a transparent shoe box, and a wardrobe made with mesh fabric. Creating a see-through quality which can show off the items within, the collection aims to help people to show off their collections, instead of hiding them away.
New for IKEA, the collection also features some all-black basic clothing in the form of a t-shirt, a hoody and a baseball cap. There’s also a duffel bag and laundry bag sitting alongside a basketball net and ball, as well as the Swedish giant’s first ever skateboard – just to emphasise the youthful vibes.
The IKEA SPÄNST range has launched in stores around the UK with items in the collection starting at £2.50. Head over to the IKEA Website to find out more.
