Just in time with the release of the highly anticipated reports on UFOs, IKEA decided to be ready with assembly manuals made for our alien friends.
On Friday, June, 25, 2021, the US government released a highly anticipated report on UFOs. The report itself was kind of disappointing – there is ‘no clear indications’ of extraterrestrial visitations. But IKEA wanted to be ready, just in case.
The project, called #furnitureforall, was launched by IKEA UAE and the design team of Ogilvy Dubai. It basically recreates some of the most iconic IKEA furniture assembly manuals, but this time, made for our alien friends.
The BRIMNES bed, the POÄNG chair, and the infamous BILLY bookcase all received their own alien-friendly redesigned assembly manuals. While we could not verify the cryptic alien language was indeed correct, we do appreciate how the designers kept the same diagrammatic style as the human manuals but include helpful hints for aliens such as a reminder not to beam newly-acquired furniture pieces directly onto their spaceship. After all, there is IKEA delivery for that. Right?
“In case extraterrestrials move to our planet, we want to help them build their new dream home easily on Earth’, says IKEA. ‘We’ve crafted a special range of furniture assembly manuals in the alien’s first language and true IKEA style, so they can easily understand and assemble IKEA’s most popular home furnishing solutions.”
I love it.
