Ikea has partnered with Vox Creative, Curbed, and Escape, which are building tiny homes and caravans in the US to create a sustainable small mobile home for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. So you can live anywhere you want, away from the grid and outside the city. Ikea Tiny Home is the perfect choice for those who are constantly on the move or can bring remote work to life.
Built as part of the Ikea Tiny Home Project, the trailer is a customized version of Escape’s Vista Boho XL. Added features include solar panels, compost toilets, and an optional heated water supply. The Ikea-specific website allows viewers to explore the home and purchase furniture or other ornaments to customize their tiny home.
“It was a natural match,” Dan Dobrowolski, founder of Escape, told Lonely Planet. “We feature many Ikea products in our various small house designs across the country, as they reflect the renewable, reusable and recycled materials we incorporate into real buildings.” They tried to make space functional with renewable, reusable, and recycled materials.
And they accomplished this task. The tiny house’s panels are made from sustainably grown pine, while the kitchen cabinets are shaped with recycled materials. The entire house is also decorated in balanced tones. Furniture with practical features such as storage compartments and folding tables were preferred.
We loved this 17.4 square meters tiny, sustainable, renewable compact home. We hope you love it too. 😉
