In 2018, The furniture giant IKEA collaborates with the British Industrial Designer Tom Dixon to create a new open-system furniture system which leads to The Delaktig. A queen sized bed with aluminium body and frame with snap on and snap off system for accessories. The rail system allows to slide and snap on different head boards, sidetables and lightning.
Tom Dixon: "As a designer you observe lots and lots of things. Most of them are useless and don't make any sense. Eventually, a pattern emerges from all the information that comes through. Good designers will be good spotters of patterns, and you apply that, or you spot a series of disparate elements, and you bring them together to be one strong idea."
The Delaktig Bed will be launched in February,2019. Let's see if the IKEA community accepts the idea of snapping the accessories.
