IKEA is no stranger to high-profile collabs, though their newest unveiling of RUMTID, a with NASA may be their most impressive to date. Targeted at city dwellers and urbanites, the collection tackles issues that arise from small-space living. Siri Skillgate, one of the five designers working on this collection, said, “We want to learn from extreme scenarios and connect them back to Earth, focusing on urbanization and small space living.”
With a future-centric consciousness driving the collection, production processes create almost no waste, and are as sustainable for the environment as they are for your small home. From air purifiers to terrariums, modularity and mobility are the driving forces behind each item in the collections. Based on the concepts of time, small space, water, and air, Ikea shoots for the stars with this ground-breaking launch.
RUMTID will be releasing four separate launches starting in 2020, and we cannot wait.
