No Allen key, less frustration
Ikea’s new Regissor line simplifies DIY assembly
All too familiar with the frustration of assembling Ikea’s ubiquitous flat-pack furniture? Well, next time could very well be different.
The Swedish company has just released a new living room storage line, Regissor, that aims to frustrate users less. The line, which includes a bookshelf (and variations of it), and a cabinet and a coffee table, does not require tools to assemble.
Through the use of patented wedge dowels, parts can be quickly put together by hand by clicking the pieces. Ikea’s thinking was that by making it even easier to assemble their furniture, people who may have found it challenging will now become fans. The cabinet shown is priced at $249; the coffee table is $149 and the bookcase is $199. Glass door cabinets start at $299.
