I can hear the choo choo choo of this press chugging along as it creates the first product made from IKEA® parts that will actually last all the live long day.
IKEA®PRESS is a collection of experiments with letterpress printing. The constructive elements of IKEA® products substitute the traditional wooden printing letters and they become the printing die for limited editions. So can a stool or a door be used to impress their outline railtracks can become typographic, figurative or abstract compositions. The same elements can then be assembled back in the objects they belonged to. By doing so they get back their functionality, but they keep a sign of the printing process, they took part in and become themselves unique industrial products.
