Anknyta: IKEA Collaboration

Expanding an IKEA couch into a nursery for new families in small spaces.

Exhibited at the 2017 Milan Furniture Fair.


We were invited by IKEA and Tom Dixon to envision new uses for their Delaktig couch. Our team of Sarah Templin and Danielle Connelly designed seven items that clip into the couch's frame to create a nursery for new families in small space.



In addition to ergonomic nursing pillows, a bassinet, a changing table with storage, rounded pillow shapes, and a mobile, we also purposed alternate finish options.

After the baby has grown, each piece can convert into a new purpose, giving them a "second life."


A multi-functional station for many different new family needs.



The project was featured in the New York Times and
