A selection of items in collaboration with five contemporary artists.
For some years now, Ikea has set itself a goal: to make art more accessible and functional so that it can enter our homes. And it is with this in mind that in 2015 the Swedish giant gave life to the Ikea Art Event project, which last year generated hype thanks to the collaboration with Virgil Abloh.
For this edition, other important names in the art scene have been recruited, including Sabine Marcelis, Stefan Marx, Humans since 1982, Gelchop and Daniel Arsham who have created design objects with a strong visual impact but at the same time functional.
“Each object in this collection has a practical function and at the same time is an object of art. The traditional idea that art is high-end and design is part of mass culture is simply no longer relevant. The two things go perfectly together – this is where the magic happens.”
Among vases, lamps and other furnishing objects, the object that has caught the most attention is certainly the clock designed by the archaeologist of the future Daniel Arsham, who takes inspiration from his famous series of works “Falling Clock”.
An opportunity to embellish your home with a unique object made by some of today’s hottest designers. The collection is now available on the Ikea website at prices ranging from €15 to €49.
