designed for today
The past contains something the mind can’t resist. For the new IKEA PS 2012 collection, we asked our designers to find inspiration in more than 60 years of IKEA design history. Instead of simply looking back, we challenged them to bring the designs forward by updating and innovating forms, functions, materials and sustainability. And of course, we asked them to do it all with affordability in mind since we believe design – even design statements like IKEA PS – belong in real homes. A better everyday life at home for the many people is our mission for the past, present and future.

IKEA PS in the past
IKEA PS is the design statement of IKEA, first launched in 1995 to strengthen a core business idea of being a design company. PS, meaning Post Scriptum, puts focus on cutting edge Scandinavian furniture design without losing sight of what makes IKEA unique – affordable, quality design for the many people.2
Like all products in the IKEA range, each IKEA PS product is a result of teamwork. From investigating new materials and production processes to securing suppliers, every IKEA product calls on the knowledge and strength of IKEA as whole. Nonetheless, there’s always a little something that inspires designers to pursue their ideas. Here’s the full line-up of the IKEA PS 2012 collection, complete with designers’ insights behind the products.
New ideas for a better future
Sustainable materials and technologies
Reinventing old ideas and products means saying goodbye to wasteful materials and processes. Looking forward requires embracing today’s ideas, materials and technologies to reduce environmental impact. That’s why IKEA PS 2012 includes more sustainable and renewable materials like wood plastic composite, pocket springs, linen, bamboo, recycled PET plastic and LED. These advances in materials and technologies help create a better and more sustainable life at home for the many people – today and tomorrow.
