Welcome contemporary African design into the home with ÖVERALLT

i there,

In May 2019, IKEA will launch ÖVERALLT, a limited-edition collection in collaboration with a selection of African fashion, sculpture, architecture and furniture designers. Inspired by African rituals and Scandi design, the collection highlights how bridging ideas, cultures and designs can create timeless pieces inspiring us to take a step out of our comfort zone and connect with the world around us.

ÖVERALLT focuses on ‘urban living’ encouraging people to open their minds, learn about new cultures and celebrate spending time with one another. Embodying IKEA’s Democratic Design principles – form, quality, low price, sustainability and function – the collection mixes modern ideas with traditional craft, resulting in pieces that are there to make each ritual a bit more special.

To mark the launch of IKEA’s new collection, we have some tips on how you can incorporate the natural hues and materials from the ÖVERALLT collection into your home.

Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Leader from IKEA UK and Ireland says:

"The ÖVERALLT collection has a number of fantastic pieces inspired by African and Scandi design to create a modern look for urban living. For example, the ÖVERALLT chair, in natural, untreated plywood is the perfect blank canvas – its sleek architectural design looks great by itself, but encourages you to put your own touch on it. Moreover, with no screws required, the chair is functional easy to assemble. To personalise the chair, use African inspired prints from the textiles to add a pop of colour.

“The beautiful basket, with a design originally inspired by hair braiding, is also a fantastic piece to incorporate into any room as it is not only a classic design made with natural fibres, but is functional too.

“For those looking to update their dining table with earth tones and a classic look, try incorporating the lighter bamboo 3-piece serving set and stone bowls that will complement the colours of any dishes, from curries to salads.”
