If the statement “Just pouring fresh water into a clear glass is in fact extraordinary spectacular,” gives you goosebumps then this is the Ikea collaboration for you. Designed by Ingegerd Råman, one of Scandinavia’s most well-known glass designer and ceramist, the Viktigt collection features bamboo and natural fibre pieces, as well as glass and ceramic. Each piece is about celebrating small everyday moments. “The love of food is the basis of my interest in usable things—objects you use every day. For me every day is equally important,” Råman said in the collection’s press release. It’s also about pure minimalism—or as minimalist as Råman and her team could make possible. “I take away and then take away some more,” Råman said, until what’s left of each piece is just the essence or what’s essential to make it functional.

She worked together with Ikea designers and craftsmen in the factory in Vietnam to make each product’s creation a collaborative effort. The design team was most taken by the transformation of the natural fibres into beautiful objects. “Pieces made from natural fibers are as far from standardized design as you can get. It’s handmade. Every chair and basket is different—that’s what intrigues me the most,” Ikea designer Nike Karlsson says.
