Trending . . . Hot designer collaboration
Ikea is on fire at the moment. Its latest designer collaboration is with Danish design house Hay and includes this soft green Ypperlig chair with armrests, ¤50; mirror, ¤19; nest of tables, ¤60 for a set of three, stool, ¤25 and vase, ¤25.
On a more anorak front its wedge dowel, a glue and tool-free joint solution used by the behemoth, has been nominated for a 2017 Beazley Designs of the Year award by the Design Museum, London where all the nominations are currently being exhibited. All nominees are being celebrated at the Design Museum, London, in a recently-opened exhibition that runs until January 28th. Hay.dk; ikea.com/ie/; designmuseum.org/exhibitions
