JASSA - An Artisan Inspired Collection From IKEA 2017

There's a bespoke Indonesian artisan inspired furniture and homewares collection ready to hit IKEA stores in March 2017. The limited edition JASSA collection made from natural fibres such as rattan and bamboo, has been designed by Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek in collaboration with IKEA.

The new collection will feature lighting, soft furnishings, ceramics, accessories and furniture inspired by traditional Indonesian handicrafts made using natural fibres.

Currently, the collection has made it to the prototype stage from where on it will move to mass production with a focus on efficiency in production techniques as all of IKEA's other products. The concept will be to provide a mass produced collection that will look and feel completely handmade and bespoke.

With limited edition collections such as VÄLBALANS a unique handmade ceramics and textiles range created by artisans based in the Doi Tung area of Thailand, SVÄRTAN featuring patterns inspired from urban Indian landscapes and JASSA inspired by traditional Indonesian craft techniques in the pipeline, there is a distinct shift from the conventional Scandinavian designs that the Swedish furniture giant IKEA is famous for. Exciting times ahead!
