Swedish furniture company Ikea is collaborating with American designer Chris Stamp, the founder and creative director of Stampd, for a home goods collection.
“Being a curious company Ikea always want to explore areas where we haven’t been before. By collaborating with a fashion designer like Chris Stamp we can bring in the inspiration of streetwear into home furnishing. Together with Chris we want to create a special place for showing and storing the favorite things, like the favorite sneakers or jacket in the home, and in that way show the uniqueness of the many people”, says Marcus Engman, head of design at Ikea of Sweden.
The collaboration will focus on storage items, and aimed towards young people with active urban lifestyles. Inspiration from the collection will come from streetwear.
"The idea behind the collection for Ikea is to reimagine how the younger, aesthetic, conscience, consumer is organizing their wardrobe and accessories at home. I want them to be able to take pride in how they display their clothing and footwear, allowing them to appreciate their pieces just as much when they’re not being worn. Ikea gave me the opportunity to bring a new perspective to the global interior market", says Stamp.
The collaboration with Ikea was launched at the Ikea Festival during the Milan Furniture Fair, and the collection is planned to be in stores during spring 2018.Photo: via Ikea.com
