IKEA Collection Explores Obscure Design Function: Making People Smile
Legendary Designer Olle Eksell adorns IKEA's latest as only he could
Önskedröm (in English, “Pipe Dream”) is the latest collection of household items from the world’s biggest furniture manufacturer IKEA. Fabric, plates, pillows and even table napkins all look extra bright with doodle-like prints from the archives of renowned Swedish illustrator Olle Eksell (1918-2007).
IKEA Sweden Design Manager Marcus Engman shares: “Our hope is that some of Olle’s happiness will rub off on everyone’s everyday life.” The artist’s trademark playful sketches will come to life in all of the collection’s pieces.
