About / How to


good lupin’ is a design concept created for IKEA, and their LUPIN blind.

My brief was to transform LUPIN, but my final concept allows everyone to transform it also!


By following a few simple steps you can convert the otherwise anonymous blind into an attractive sculpture – it’s a dynamic way of constructing a sculptural object, and it enables you to create an entirely unique and beautiful sculpture for yourself.

The IKEA business idea is to offer good design at prices so low that as many people as possible will be able to afford it. One way to ensure lower prices is by letting customers do part of the job (like assembly). good lupin’ is not only based on IKEA’s concept of leaving construction up to the customer, but even invites you to partake in the creation of contemporary art and affect the visual expression of the end product.
