Anknyta: IKEA Collaboration

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

Exhibited at the 2017 Milan Furniture Fair.


Invited by IKEA and Tom Dixon to envision new uses for their Delaktig couch, co-designer Danielle Connelly and I 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 proposed 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
