Because we all need a hand sometimes

Sometime we all need a little more help around the home. It might be a more supportive chair while we're pregnant, or daily assistance due to the natural effect of aging. To help design the new OMTÄNKSAM range, creative leader Britt Monti used ergonomic research from the care industry to help create products she says, "We hope you'll be proud to have in your home from a style perspective. The only difference is that they're more user friendly and supportive."

Designers Pia Amsell and Barbro Berlin

"Our starting point was to create vases that make flowers thrive. That’s why we decided on shapes that give foliage and stems the room and support they need. OMTÄNKSAM vases are also easy to lift, carry and wash. You can use them separately or combine several. We hope that the vases will make you and your flowers feel good – every day."

OMTÄNKSAM – For EveryBody

There are times when we all need a bit of extra comfort and support. With the OMTÄNKSAM range, IKEA wants to make everyday life easier for everyone – and for every body. Big and small, all OMTÄNKSAM products are designed with our different human needs in focus. Experience an armchair that it’s easy to get in and out of, tables with plenty of leg room, vases that are equally beautiful and easy to handle, plus lots more – all made in close collaboration with ergonomics experts and tested by real people, with different needs. Welcome to try out the products and their great features!

What is glass?

Glass is mainly made of sand, soda and lime melted at a high temperature. Tempering or various additives gives you extra-strong and impact-resistant glass that in some cases can be taken straight from freezer to oven without cracking. A big benefit is how glass can be recycled over and over without the quality deteriorating. Also, a lot less energy is needed to melt recycled glass compared to new raw materials. Our goal is to eventually use only recycled glass in our range.

Story

Because we all need a hand sometimes

We don't always like to admit it, but at some time in life we all could use a little more support around the home. It might be a more supportive chair when pregnant, a longer shoehorn after running a marathon, or just more everyday assistance due to the natural process of ageing. That’s where the OMTÄNKSAM range comes in. Designed with input from ergonomists, physiotherapists and researchers in the care industry, it makes activities around the home safer, easier and more comfortable. Little surprise that the Swedish word OMTÄNKSAM simply means "caring”.

Our creative leader Britt Monti was the main force that pushed the project forward. "If you look into IKEA catalogues from the 60's you'll see we used to speak about comfort and support for older people or people with back problems for example," Britt explains. "But since the 80's we just didn't have this customer in mind when developing a range." Britt spoke with researchers, physiotherapists and doctors as well as people working in the caretaking field. The research gave a better picture on how best to support the body in doing basic household activities.

Style and ergonomic design can work together

"We wanted the range to be something that you would be proud to have in your home from a style perspective, the only difference is that in function it's more user friendly and supportive." For Britt one of the standouts has been a new take on tableware. "I've been interviewing people living in elderly homes and one thing that stood out was that a lot of people stopped using their porcelain when they ate because they're afraid it would break, or that they might feel clumsy using it," Britt says. The OMTÄNKSAM range helps people keep their independence and do the things they've always been able to do, whether it's putting on shoes, enjoying a drink or getting out of their chair.
