A limited collection designed in collaboration with Finnish design house Marimekko, BASTUA is inspired by nature and the self-care rituals of the Nordic sauna. Towels with vibrant prints, cushions, tables, glassware and more encapsulate the simple and aesthetic beauty of nature, this collaboration meant to inspire quiet moments in the everyday. Be it in form or function, the relaxing Nordic pastime is woven in throughout the collection.

Dreamy patterns inspired by the Nordic sauna

These bold and colourful kimonos’ designs feature rhubarbs that sometimes grow next to sauna huts in Finland, and graphic yet relaxed stripes reminiscent of the slats that playfully lie side-by-side on sauna benches.

“ This pattern for the BASTUA collection is inspired by the large, decorative rhubarb leaves that sometimes grow next to sauna buildings in Finland. ”

Like little jewels on your dining table

The collection includes exquisite glasses, bowls and jugs inspired by carved logs and sun-dappled water ripples. IKEA designer Henrik Preutz imagined a sauna by a lake – where the wind rippled the surface while reflecting the midnight sun in the crystal-clear water.

Simple design that brings calm

“Nordic furniture design has always been characterised by clean lines and simple constructions that focus on function,” IKEA designer Mikael Axelsson shares. The furniture in the collection is a nod to this heritage with its solid birch material and simple, yet functional design.

Delightful on the go items for everyday adventures

Our iconic and super handy FRAKTA carrier bag gets a bold remix with colourful patterns, including one with larger-than-life rhubarb leaves. Meanwhile, the pattern on the water bottle is inspired by löyly the flower like abstract shapes that steam creates when water is thrown on a hot sauna stove.
