While in Sweden for \u201cDemocratic Design Days 2018,\u201d we had an opportunity to preview IKEA\u2019s upcoming F\u00d6RNYAD collection, co-designed by Australian graphic Designer Craig Redman. The collection is aimed at students although suitable for anyone who likes patterns and colour.\r\n\r\nSo what is F\u00d6RNYAD about? Well, F\u00d6RNYAD translates to \u2018renewed,\u2019 meaning the collection adds new life to your desk and office setup.\r\n\r\nThe cycloptic character printed on the couch is Darcel. He\u2019s the star of Craig Redman\u2019s blog Darcel Disappoints. Along with Colette Creative Director Sarah Andelman, the two have brought new life to several IKEA staples. F\u00d6RNYAD designs focus on the core elements of Colette\u2019s blue and accompanying dots, and Darcel\u2019s black egg shape and cycloptic eye.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nWhile neither Redman or Andelman are household names, they have an impressive resume; Working on projects for Nike, adidas, Chanel, Apple, Google and Vogue to name a few.\r\n\r\nExpect the F\u00d6RNYAD collection to include stationaries, notebooks, desk lighting, a stool, pedal bin, rug, couch and more. The F\u00d6RNYAD collection will be available for a limited time starting in 2019.\r\n\r\nFor more of IKEA\u2019s Democratic Design Days 2018, check out the upcoming collaborations with LEGO and adidas.
