CURBED's Lauren Ro shares a look at Ikea’s second collaboration with Dutch furniture designer Piet Hein Eek.
Dubbed Industriell, the limited-release collection includes chairs, tables, and benches that are designed with a DIY, woodshop-esque sensibility characterized by rough-hewn pine with exposed joints. The wooden furniture pieces feature knots and grains and are stained in colors like white, black, blue, mint, yellow, natural, and gray that highlight rather than conceal their imperfections.
Also part of Industriell are glassware manufactured by two different machines, ceramic vases made from handcrafted molds, and textiles patterned in stripes and checkerboard hand-drawn by the designer to give the collection an overall “mismatched” and personal feel. Take a look.
