Industrial chic with a Thai twist.
After offering us a glimpse of their limited-edition collab collection in mid-2019, Ikea and Thai fashion and lifestyle label Greyhound Original are finally ready to release it to fans this month.
Dubbed “Sammankoppla,” which means “unify” or “interconnect” in Swedish, the eco-friendly collection designed by Greyhound’s creative director Bhanu Inkawat is part of Ikea’s “Collaboration Projects 2020” campaign.
Marking the first collaboration in Southeast Asia for the Swedish furniture giant, the collection boasts a huge range of 25 affordable home decor items made from reused materials, all of which add an industrial chic aesthetic with a Thai twist to your living space.
With multi-functionality and sustainability at the core of the collaboration, expect reversible rugs made from recycled plastic straws, Thai-style triangular-shaped cushions, a table and shelving rack inspired by scaffolding seen on construction sites, and a multi-purpose LED lamp made from recycled PET liquid bottles. And, true to Greyhound’s style, many products from the collection come in the label’s signature shades of black, white and gray.
The limited-edition collection is now available at Ikea Bangna and Bangyai branches, as well as in Ikea stores worldwide.
