Tom Dixon Launches New Collection of Bemz Covers for IKEA’s DELAKTIG

Tom Dixon Launches New Collection of Bemz Covers for IKEA’s DELAKTIG Bemz, the Stockholm-based brand that revamps your IKEA furniture with design covers, partnered with British designer Tom Dixon on a collection of covers for the multipurpose DELAKTIG, a piece designed by IKEA and Dixon himself. The DELAKTIG was designed as an open source product to allow anybody to design their own hacks to use with it. For the Bemz collection, Dixon appears to have hacked himself by offering the first hack for purchase instantly.


The partnership resulted in a series of luxury covers for the DELAKTIG 3-seater, 2-seater, and 1-seater platforms, which can be used as a sofa, bed, or lounge, depending on your needs. The collection includes three fabrics – Superrock, Floral, and Natural



During Milan Design Week 2017, Bemz x Tom Dixon launched this concept cover in Icelandic long-haired sheepskin.

Best Interior Design Posts of 2017

                                Every week we go inside some of the most incredible modern houses, apartments, and offices to get a taste of how other people live, or rather, to get a peek at their taste. Most spaces leave us with severe design envy, ready to forward our mail directly there, or at least dream of it. But most of all, they leave us inspired and wanting to incorporate some elements into our own homes.

The Delirium Collection Brings Playful Patterns to Your IKEA Sideboard

                                                <a href="" data-wpel-link="internal"><img src="" alt="The Delirium Collection Brings Playful Patterns to Your IKEA Sideboard" /></a>
                                We&#8217;ve <a href=""  rel="noopener" data-wpel-link="internal">long been fans</a> of what <a href="" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Superfront</a> is doing to elevate IKEA furniture and cabinets and their latest was born from a collaboration with Swedish artist Klas Ernflo. Unlike the previous repetitive patterns, The Delirium Collection of sideboard fronts features a playful yet refined pattern that&#8217;s different on each door front.
The pattern is the same color as the fronts themselves so it shows up as a relief that’s been carved out. The idea is that the design can work with most any style of home from just about any decade. Delirium will come in all of the Superfront colors and will be available beginning August 17th, 2017. Photos by Philip Karlberg.
