Craftwork for the Masses: Inegerd Råman’s New Collection for Ikea

April 28, 2016

Since Isle Crawford’s Sinnerlig collection, we’ve been paying extra attention to Ikea’s upcoming collaborations. Next up is the Viktigt collection with Swedish glass and ceramic designer Ingegerd Råman. The collection focuses on handmade objects, from glass carafes to woven furniture and traditional Vietnamese patterns in bamboo. Here is a preview to plan your wish list ahead of time with (the Viktigt collection launches in May 2016).

Above: Råman designed the collection with Vietnamese craftspeople in Vietnam, making pieces that she liked herself. “Everything I do, I do for myself. I’m the first customer, I used to say, and I can’t speculate in what other people really want. The only thing I know is that I’m not so unique and I share a lot with other people,” she says.
