IKEA FURNITURE MADE MORE ACCESSIBLE BY 3D PRINTING PARTS

Swedish furniture giant Ikea is known for bringing cheap furnishings to the masses. However, many of its pieces exclude people with disabilities due to design choices like tiny switches and low couches.

But, thanks to a new project, called This Ables and a few 3D printing tweaks, this can be changed. Non-profit organizations Milbat and Access Israel partnered with Ikea to create solutions for those with special needs and disabilities.

The team is working on bridging some of the gaps between existing products and people with special needs. This Ables are 3D printable parts which can be added onto Ikea furniture to make it easier to use.
