IKEA have collaborated with non-profit organisations Milbat and Access Israel to develop a new line of 3D printed products to bridge some of the gaps between existing IKEA products and the needs of people belonging to differently abled populations.

The ThisAbles project was carefully conceived with a designated site that was constructed for the project and adapted for people with disabilities.

These add-ons are downloadable for free from their website or available for purchase from IKEA.

Discover the most innovative designs across fashion, architecture, digital, transport, product and graphic design from the past 12 months, as nominated by design experts from around the world.
