Each piece is unique.

Dutch designer Piet Hein Eek has joined forces with IKEA for a range of deliberately imperfect goods. The second collab between the brands, the Industriell collection has a range of limited-edition goods — ranging from textiles, glassware, chairs, tables and ceramics. The aim for the collection is to make every piece look slightly different, saying they wanted to “redefine mass-produced products by turning uniformity on its head.”

In a statement, Piet Hein Eek discussed the idea behind the collaboration in more detail. “When I graduated from design school there was a great drive for perfection in design. If you made a thousand copies they all had to be identical, and there was nothing in the design that hadn’t been put in there by the designer himself,” he said. “I wanted to strip that idea away, and make objects feel more human and personal while still having an industrial production process.”

The IKEA x Piet Hein Eek Industriell collection is available from IKEA’s stores now.
