You've all seen this idea before: small spaces with extremely flexible multi-role furniture. Usually an home-made solution by an architect or a clever designer living in places like Hong Kong or Japan. Well, IKEA now has their own spin on it with the ROGNAN.

More and more people are living and moving into cities where approximately an extra 1.5 million people join the urban population every week. This mass urbanisation is accelerating and creates heavily populated cities that are at the same time consuming both land and resources at an unsustainable pace. IKEA wants to create a better everyday life for the many people, enabling them to create their dream homes in small spaces. In order to do this, IKEA had to answer the question: How can you utilise the square meters of your home in a better way without compromising on either function or your dreams?
