When the RÅANE armchair launched in 1983, it was called JÄRPEN. Designer Niels Gammelgaard wanted to challenge the idea of an armchair and see if it was possible to make it comfortable without any filling or fabric. The solution? Mesh material designed resource-efficiently.
Revisit fun favourites
The KLIPPAN sofa was one of the first affordable sofas from IKEA. Designed to stand up to our need to play, it paid tribute to popular ’80s design movement The Memphis Group. For GRATULERA, the IKEA favourite gets new covers in cool cobalt blue, bright yellow and fiery red.
