Ikea Rolling Out Two New Collections

Ikea is rolling out two new limited-time collections for June: Fornyad, celebrating student and work life, and Annanstans, promoting crafts and job creation.

The company developed the Fornyad collection in collaboration with co-designers Sarah Andelman and Craig Redman, creator of the Darcel Disappoints cartoons. Products include a side table/cart, a charging task lamp, a stool, a table, a pedal wastebasket, a dinnerware set, a four-piece desk set, a loveseat cover and cases for tablets, pencils and general use.

The Annanstans collection merges handicraft with modern style sensibilities in collaboration with designer Martin Bergström and social entrepreneur artisans from four different social enterprises in India, Romania and Thailand. Products include baskets, a vase, a plate, a bowl, a box with lid, a tote bag and apparel.
