IKEA approached Form Us With Love to create a durable and affordable multi-purpose chair based on the needs of both domestic and public environments.
The challenge behind Janinge was striking a balance between the ideas of detailed aesthetics and public appeal. Janinge had to be strong, stable, and impact-resistant, all while maintaining a price point of thirty-nine euros. Inspired by a wooden chair, Form Us With Love strived to keep those fine lines and edges, pushing to keep the radius as sharp as possible.
The result was a visual stimulus for public areas as well as genuine durability for your home. Developing an everyday chair is a long process, and after two years, Janinge passed ANSI BIFMA, the hardest quality certificate for public use.
