Ikea creates easily re-packable furniture for urban nomads

In-step with today's sensibilities, IKEA is producing a new line of furniture dubbed Råvaror that is not only designed for small spaces, but has the added bonus of being easily dismantled, packed, moved and re-assembled. “Our starting point and creative idea was the reality of urban life,” says Viveca Olsson, Creative leader, IKEA of Sweden. “We asked ourselves; what is needed to turn a small space, such as 12 square meters (129 sq ft), into a home? And what is needed to create that homely feeling even though you might be moving on to a new place soon? The urban population is growing, living spaces are shrinking and for many of us the concept of home is no longer a geographical constant.”
