Swedish design maverick Per B Sunderberg is currently working in collaboration with Ikea for designs in his new FÖREMÅL collection––a kitschy, fun and surprising collection of decorative objects.
Like many of Per’s well-known pieces, this collection requires a second glance – the artist is known to hide surprises in plain sight. When designing patterns for the textiles and boxes in the collection, Per scanned an old egg carton, his pyjamas and other found objects and turned them into mirrored patterns on the computer. “My works are lush, a bit rough and burlesque, they are based on folklore and are easy to understand,” he says.Ikea
You can check out some pieces from the collection in the video below:
We also dug way back into our Sunderberg archives to 2016 and uncovered the most remarkable glazes. Enjoy!

I bought a few of these pieces from Ikea right after they came out last August. They are mostly unavailable at this point. Really cool line!
wow! these are fabulous!
