Big news from IKEA: collaborations with British designer Tom Dixon and Danish brand HAY are in the works for 2017.
The collection with HAY will maintain a classic Scandinavian feel with light colors and clean lines; the main focus is on the continuing shift toward a more fluid living space, and what pieces are truly necessary in a 21st century urban home. The line will include furniture, accessories, lighting, and textiles.
Even the iconic FRAKTA bag gets the HAY treatment with a more muted palette:
The Tom Dixon collection also focuses on the ever-changing home, and how to solve the tensions that arise in smaller spaces having to be one-stop shops for socializing, eating, working, and relaxing. While the details are still top secret, Dixon did reveal they're working on an aluminum-framed sofa that he hopes could surpass the KLIPPAN.
The Tom Dixon collection will be available in August 2017, while the HAY collection is slated for Fall 2017.
