Description:

Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Design by IKEA is the fist book to scrutinize the Swedish giant's massive impact on contemporary design culture. Unpicking how the public image of IKEA has come to depend as much on the international image of Sweden as the other way around, Sara Kristoffersson critically assesses the company's creative use of storytelling and stereotypes.

Synopsis:

Sara Kristoffersson's compelling study provides the first sustained critical history of IKEA. Kristoffersson argues that the company's commercial success has been founded on a neat alignment of the brand with a particular image of Swedish national identity – one that is bound up with ideas of social democracy and egalitarianism - and its material expression in a pared-down, functional design aesthetic. Employing slogans such as "Design for everyone" and "Democratic design", IKEA signals a rejection of the stuffy, the 'chintzy', and the traditional in both design practices and social structures.
Drawing on original research in the IKEA company archive and interviews with IKEA personnel, Design by IKEA traces IKEA's symbolic connection to Sweden, through its design output and its promotional materials, to examine how the company both promoted and profited from the concept of Scandinavian Design.

Book Description: A broad and critical coverage of Scandinavian design output, both in historical and contemporary terms.
