Ikea Kitchenware Turned ArtAuthor:Stephanie Orma
Butter knives, tea infusers, and mixing bowls. Functional, yes. But ingredients for gallery-worthy art?
Photographer Carl Kleiner and stylist Evelina Bratell have managed to turn the banally ordinary into the extraordinary for Swedish brand, Ikea. Sexing up the company’s new kitchenware range into intricate patterns, the creative duo worked with repetition, stacking, and color to transform the products into unique shapes and then photographed them from above.
The results? Modern, minimalist, and stunning.
But this isn’t the first time the team focused their lens on stuff found in our kitchen. In Ikea’s covetable cookbook, Homemade Is Best, the pair arranged baking supplies into equally eye-popping, geometric visuals.
Suddenly, cheap tableware is looking pretty darn good.
