NASA and IKEA Have a Space-Inspired Furniture Collection on the Way
Take a sneak peek at what’s to come.
IKEA has been on a collaboration spree as of late. Earlier this season the furniture giant revealed upcoming collaborations with adidas and Solange’s creative company Saint Heron. Partnerships with LEGO and Sonos have also been teased to our delight. The latest collaboration will be with NASA‘s Mars Research station. The collection will be named RUMTID which in Swedish translates to “spacetime.”
The project aims to create unique products that can fit in small living spaces. Utilizing modularity and mobility, each of the items will focus on issues of time, space, water and air. Among the haul is a redesigned air purifier, an indoor terrarium pod, lighting solution and a block-based furniture system made from recycled wood. Creative leader Micahel Nikolic shares the process behind creating this piece: “By cutting the tubes into different lengths and clamping them together, we can build just about anything, be it sofas, wardrobes, beds or something else completely.”
