Word on the street has it that IKEA is launching a revised art and craft MÅLA series in February. The MÅLA series of art supplies for children will have more child-friendly sizes, stronger tips, more colours and changes made to their felt-tip pens, stamp pens, tempera paint, water colours, paper and scissors.
Designers Sarah Fager and Camilla Tubertini researched how to make meaningful improvements to MÅLA by going straight to the kid;. ”I started by doing research and studied the way children create – how they hold scissors, move a paintbrush across paper, what colours they like most and how they mix them,” Camilla says. “We wanted our art supplies to be inspiring for children to play with, both alone and together with siblings, friends or parents.” Check out some samples below.
