“Nykomling” meaning “Newcomer” in Swedish is furniture platform designed for new immigrants and refugees that uses the widely available IKEA products. New immigrants often come to this country with little material possessions. With this platform, newcomers are able to build and upgrade the furniture system as they become more established and grow. In order to keep costs down and increase distribution efficiency, the initial kits are compatible with IKEA PINGLA cardboard boxes but can be upgraded between SNALIS storage boxes and ANTONIUS wire baskets. It can be reconfigured into two or more modules, serving as side table frames, a coffee table frame or a bed frame.
