Ikea the book

£29.99

Product description

no one has made good design affordable and available to the masses like ikea.
I dare you to find a starter apartment or starter home without at least one piece of Malm, Lack or Expedit. The designs are ubiquitous; Some even frequent the auction circuit, like the 1994 Verner Panton Vilbert chair (pictured).

But what about the design team? Who are they and how do they do it? And while we’re on the subject, how did Ingvar Kamprad found a weapon of mass production like Ikea at age 17? Answering these questions, it turns out, is no easy task. It took Scandinavian design authority Staffan Bengtsson 450 pages to do it in Ikea.

This is a scarce softback in great condition.
