Thesis project: Investigate new materials for IKEA vases, bowls and plant pot range
IKEA of Sweden AB, Älmhult
The foundation of all product development is the idea that even with a thin wallet people should still be able to create a beautiful home with functional, safe and healthy products.
A team of co-workers with different competencies develop products in order to find the right combination of design, function and quality – all to the lowest price possible.
We are now looking for students helping us strengthen our offer of vases, bowls and plant pots in order to make our range more attractive to our customers. We need new materials to widen the expression and we also see a potential in reducing the weight of our bigger pots.
Below areas needs to be investigated and included in the report:
• Look for new/ alternative materials
• Investigate available materials in the market
• Compare price picture of new materials to existing and how will it influence the final cost to IKEA customers
We are looking for one or two students with engineering background and interest in home furnishing and retailing. You have material knowledge in plastic and/or concrete/ceramics.
You are outgoing, able to communicate in English, take initiative and work independently.
You are also efficient in Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point.
We will have available resources at IKEA of Sweden and our Trading Offices around the world that can help you gather information regarding suppliers and materials.
You are able to start the 10 weeks project in spring 2012.
Application deadline: 2011-11-27.
