ThisAbles Project by IKEA, to create solutions for people with special needs and disabilities

I guess everybody on Earth knows what is IKEA, right? It's the home furnishings & furniture company founded in the beautiful country of Sweden. Since 2008, they have been proven to be the world's largest furniture retailer and yet still prove they can innovate. Introducing ThisAbles Project in collaboration with non-profit organizations Milbat and Access Israel, that specialize in creating special solutions for populations with special needs and disabilities. They have developed a new and revolutionary line of products that bridge some of the gaps between existing IKEA products, let's give it a look.

In their words

The ThisAbles project was conceived to allow people with special needs to enjoy the quality of life provided by IKEA products.

It was important for us to create maximum access in every aspect of the project, from the designated site that we constructed for the project, that was adapted for people with disabilities, to the products themselves, some of which can even be printed independently in a 3D printer based on models that we have made available to the general public.
