“…as soon as you buy IKEA, you start working for IKEA…” that’s what a friend of mine complained about the swedish furniture retailer. I’ve worked hard for IKEA in these years, customizing the basic items to fit my personal needs. Here’s a gallery of examples (beware, name of items may vary from country to country).
VINK is supposed to hold CDs, but by coupling two of them you will get a dish drainer (works also with circular dishes, design Enrica Vatteroni).
BILLY is a very cheap shelf system. Modules come in two heights, 202 and 106cm. I piled them up to maximize wall coverage.
BILLY comes in two different shelf spans, 80 and 60cm. First bends under book load, second has no front panels. I accomodated FAKTUM front panels on a BILLY 60cm structure.
FAKTUM modular kitchen system is here integrated in a handcrafted frame.
Bookshelf combines PETER stands with handcrafted shelves. I had to shorten the legs of LIDEN tv carrier to fit a larger screen.
RADIUM rail spotlight system was deconstructed to fit on the bathroom mirror.
Spotlight prop was screwed to a clip gripped on the mirror.
