Yesterday evening I looked online for a night stand and saw IKEA sells the Nesna which is one of the finest examples of mass production and design ever. A simple bamboo frame with slats, glass and fasteners assembled produces one of the finest furniture pieces available for under 20 United States Dollars. IKEA has used design in a revolutionary way and can curve the expense of life to make an individual live more richly. What are society’s goals, do we want everyone to have access to new designer things or the maintenance of a stratified world? IKEA can make it so it is impossible to turn a profit in the other facets of life due to their advanced means of fabrication and distribution; yet, they are a company that is enabling life to be lived more fully because of the reduction of a burden with basic necessities.
