Form Us With Love Designs an Affordable Chair for IKEA

Stockholm-based design studio Form Us With Love designed the affordable, stackable JANINGE chair collection for Swedish giant IKEA. The design had to be unique enough for the home, yet suitable to be used in other types of environments, including corporate and institutional settings, as well as working for outdoor environments.

In order to make that happen, the chair had to be affordable but most importantly, durable and strong. They analyzed old Scandinavian wood frames for strength ideas and built a detailed mold that was able to pass BIFMA standards for public quality testing.
