Ilse Crawford’s contribution to sustainability: neverending beauty

What if you could design a candle holder, a vase or a plant pot that not only serves its purpose but is also so beautiful that we never want to replace it? That’s one of the starting points for the long-term collaboration between Ilse Crawford and IKEA, and that’s what she aims to accomplish through her latest collection for us.

Recharging for a more sustainable future

Many people think rechargeable batteries are complicated and expensive, so we challenged ourselves to offer our customers a simple solution – a long-lasting rechargeable €1 battery that’s ready to use. These batteries also reduce waste as they don’t need to be disposed of. Let’s keep the planet cleaner together!

It’s a huge challenge, but Anders has found a way to make commitments easy: “Make them a part of your daily life by turning them into habits”, he says.
