Two years ago, IKEA teamed up with a group of designers, architects, and creatives from five African countries to collaborate around modern urban rituals and the importance they play in the home. the result is the limited-edition collection ÖVERALLT, which has been at the place where it all started — the design indaba festival in cape town. described as fun, inclusive, and expressive, the collection ranges from tableware and seating to textiles. the content reflects the diverse backgrounds of the participating creatives, who were paired with IKEA designers to create the collection.

World renowned artist and designer Selly Raby Kane’s ideas for ÖVERALLT began by translating her home city Dakar into characters, and then reinterpreting those characters through braiding sculptures and objects. The results are the hand-braided baskets, available in two different sizes. Fill them with quilts and blankets, show off a few favorite items or keep them empty, like the piece of artistry that they are.
