UNIKEA or Unique IKEA project by designer Kenyon Yeh in which he seeks to create personal identity from ubiquitous uniformity.
The piece is assambled from a standard IKEA – RAST drawer chest flat pack without following the instructions (or, as he says, he put away the instructions).
Instead, he simply customized each piece to fit his own personal taste, with the addition of a few details. Amalgamation of an old detailed English chair leg brings a fresh new feel to the simple UNIKEA design.
“The process is liberating and brings a limitless attitude of possibility creating unique furniture object instead of doing such a thing that made by forces.”
UNIKEA is part of IKEA Hacked exhibition at IKEA Museum Älmhult.
IKEA Hacked showcases work by 30 contributors from all over the world.
