Get Ready For Tom Dixon's Innovative IKEA Collab
This convertible piece is changing the game.
Have you ever wanted an all-purpose piece of furniture? Clearly, Tom Dixon has that goal in his mind. In his collaboration with IKEA to be released in 2018, the designer has been developing a modular bed that can not only double as a sofa, but can also serve as an "open platform for living," according to Dezeen. With a little help from the team at Bemz, known for creating add-ons to enhance IKEA furniture, Dixon has created a convertible base called the Delektig that is ready for easy adaptations.
"It's turned into a raft, it's turned into a double decker bed, a sofa system for airports," said Dixon. "It's a bed first, but it can turn into anything." With a strong aluminum frame, the design is meant to be recycled as something new over time. "Delaktig is an experiment that challenges the conventional methods of creation and distribution of furniture and explores the notions of adaptability and future-proofing," says Dixon. Sounds like a good investment piece to us!
