June 2018 –
For this project, I did research about the positioning, beliefs, and production of IKEA. I designed mugs that truly can be used by ‘the many people’, as IKEA says in their vision.
This series is designed for people with a disability or specific limitations without the feeling of being limited and different. This is the first step of a more including IKEA.
Using the struggles I experience because of Rheumatism, I started to research about ergonomics. I believe that products should be more functional and ergonomic, considering people with limitations are often excluded from design.
After a long process of research, prototyping, 3d printing, mold making, casting, glazing and firing twice I created two types of mugs what can be held by the preference of the user.
