Last year a collaboration between Tom Dixon and Ikea yielded the Delaktig, a sort of open-source furniture system built around a day bed/couch/seating platform, which could be customized in various ways. Now they’ve expanded the line to include a proper bed, Queen-sized, which features the same aluminum construction and snap-on, snap-off system of accessories (in this case a headboard, a side table and lights).
There are several colors and materials available and you may assemble the bed and add a variety of accessories and elements you want, which is a traditional thing for IKEA items. This is a great idea for a modern bedroom – smart, comfortable and customizable. We’ll be curious to see if the Ikeahacking community takes the Delaktig bed to heart and starts producing swiveling worksurfaces and reading-light rigs.
