SKAPA was created as part of a collection of objects designed and exhibited under the title ‘Ten plans’. The designs were all exhibited as a set of instructions that give people the opportunity to build their own objects from readily available materials or parts.
By using IKEA products as the components for the design it is possible to ensure that not only will your local store stock the same product but it will also have exactly the same name. The resulting design is a ride-on toy for children. It is made up from one IKEA storage box, one IKEA chopping board and a set of IKEA castors. These are then held together with two cable/Zip ties and decorated with your choice of handles and eyes.
SKAPA (Swedish) = CREATE
