IKEA Delaktig Hacks
So, this is the plan – you can go to IKEA and you can buy yourself a bed. It’s an affordable bed. If you want, you can add components to make it into a sofa. Once you’ve got this bed sofa you can add on our hacks, other people’s hacks, or you can hack it yourself.
About Delaktig Hacks
From the minute you are born to your last moments on earth, at home, in prison, in hospital or on holiday the only indispensable piece of furniture is the bed. We could consider it the primary unit of home furnishing. But what if a bed could work harder - become other things? Change function when you move home or grow up?
With IKEA we decided to create a super-durable aluminum frame that could be constantly updated or upgraded as your life and needs evolve. At its most basic, Delaktig is a single bed - rapidly transformable into a chaise lounge or a three seat sofa by adding additional components.
Contributing to a global community of IKEA hackers that already edit and modify IKEA designs for every-day life, we began working with the world’s most innovative art schools to see if Delaktig, rather than being a complete finished piece of furniture, could be the start of something much bigger - a kind of ecosystem with unlimited possibilities. The results were diverse and inspiring.
In response we have created heavy-weight task lamps, coffee tables and magazine racks that can be clamped, slotted or bolted on at will, to mutate the sofa into a work or entertainment space. Made of substantial and durable aluminum plate our hacks are robust enough to last a lifetime.
We’ve also collaborated with Bemz who specialize in soft hacks to produce four luxe covers that elevate the IKEA frame into a luxury unit – from sleek black wool to shower-proof stripes, and even a one-off Icelandic sheepskin mono-cover known as ‘The Beast’. We also offer a heavy-weight Boucle throw that you can use to transform the entire unit into a electric blue mass.
