GRATULERA: reviving IKEA designs of the 50s and 60s
Own the first piece of flatpack In 1955
IKEA co-worker Gillis Lundgren removed the legs of a table so it would fit into his tiny car. Six decades later, nearly all IKEA furniture is flatpacked and Gillis’ table has been brought back to life as the LÖVBACKEN side table.
Serve up 1960s style
Get nostalgic with retro accessories, like the TILLPLATTAD tray, SMAKKÄNSLA glasses and VÄLFYLLD bowl. Made from 100% recycled and laminated paperboard, the tray combines today’s sustainable production processes with the dark-wood look typical of midcentury style.
Celebrate artisanal skills
The BJURÅN chair was known as ÖGLA when it first launched back in 1961. To this day, it’s still manufactured at the same factory in Poland, and the solid wood is shaped in the same artisanal way.
Revive an old favourite
One of IKEA founder Ingvar Kamprad’s favourite designs, the STRANDMON wing chair is inspired by an IKEA design from the early 1950s. Today it has the same high back for extra support and comes in dark green-blue and turquoise for the GRATULERA collection.
