The Ingvar Range takes inspiration from the great success of IKEA and its founder Ingvar Kamprad. Besides being sensible from a cost perspective, flat-pack furniture also makes a lot of sense environmentally. By sending our tables, chairs and benches flat they can save up to 80% of the packaging materials while also drastically reducing shipping costs.
The furniture arrives in a flat cardboard box with instructions and the necessary bolts, as well as an Allen key for assembly. The parts come together in one configuration and only take a few minutes to assemble. The aesthetic is clean, honest and features the details and joints. The range is made using Scandinavian birch and finished with a durable epoxy varnish, but it is also available in bamboo.
Pedersen + Lennard explain that “the flat-pack challenge brings a lot of opportunity to our design process and forces us to think in new ways.”
