AWSI Musings: IKEA’s Open Source Sofa Provides Cheap Thrills…

We introduced the “SNapkin” concept in this post. Here’s another to peruse and ponder.  Enjoy!—The Gang


The headline was an eye-grabber. The concept — smile-inducing.

Per the story which appeared in The Wall Street Journal, IKEA , the big box / flat box / allen wrench-to-assemble furniture retailer, is actively encouraging “mods” — DIY customization to fit a space, or change functions entirely over time.

Be on the lookout for their new sofa called Delaktig [Swedish for “being part of something”].

AWSI, for IKEA, this is an awesome way to create an engaging, deeper relationship with their customers and gain new fans. Plus — just think of the stories! We can see DIY channel potential and lots of YouTube uploads coming. Curious to see what User Generated mods get created. Awesome!
