IKEA Remakes Its Classic Pieces To Be More Sustainable [Pics]

Retro furniture items updated to meet modern demands and functions.

Yi Chen


The IKEA PS collection allows former popular furniture pieces to be revised by its designers. The unique collection is released every three years and this time, it coincides with IKEA’s 60th anniversary. The Scandinavian company hopes to revisit its past items and revamp them to increase its modern appeal in terms of functionality and sustainability.

Some of the updated furniture pieces includes a children’s foam indoor chair released in the 80s that is now a plastic and stackable armchair that can also be used outdoors. Then there are tables and storage solutions that have been reworked using bamboo or steel, making them more eco-friendly and easier to recycle.

The IKEA PS 2012 collection will be launched in store in August, but view the photos below for a sneak preview of the design.
