“We are not allowed to transport air – that is a sort of taboo at Ikea, because transporting air costs money. For the Vållö watering can, I would never have thought of that shape if it were not for being forced to make it affordable in transport. The PS collection stands for Post Scriptum. It’s where we show what IKEA can stand for, where we show products with an edge and with more design value.”
- Monika Mulder, part of Ikea’s in house design team, on the now iconic Vållö watering can.
