IKEA’s MITTZON to meet the changing needs of many working professionals

In March 2024, IKEA, a leading provider of well-designed, high-quality, functional and affordable home and office furnishing products launched MITTZON, a flexible, ergonomic, and simple line of furniture, to help create spaces that enable various work activities and provide an optimized office experience. MITTZON includes 85 products prioritizing wellbeing by including acoustics and nature-inspired elements. In MITTZON acoustic screens, IKEA used wood fiber, a recyclable material made of more than 90% wood. These acoustic screens are the first high-level acoustic products by IKEA that are developed not to absorb and block sound but also prevent visual distractions and provide the privacy needed to focus on solely on work.  By launching MITTZON, IKEA took the challenge of conceptualizing a system that addresses the needs of many working professionals in this rapidly growing hybrid work culture.

MITTZON is developed with huge flexibility at its core. It includes various products that work together to support different environments which include informal, short meetings to more structured, collaborative, and focused work. MITTZON comprises biophilic designs which refers to the use of nature reminiscing shapes, colors, and materials in indoor spaces.

How have the alliances made by Myron and Steelcase revolutionized the business dynamics?

To foster the industry’s competitiveness, several leading players in the domain have made alliances such as mergers, acquisitions, partnerships, and collaborations. For instance, in February 2024, Myron, a leading distributor of top promotional products, and its Europe-based brand, Adher, announced the acquisition of Schneider GmbH, a renowned provider of B2C furnishing and decoration for the home and office. Under this acquisition, the companies envisioned making heavy investments in technology to build the workplace more attractive for growth-minded salespeople.

Similarly, in May 2022, Steelcase Inc., an international manufacturer of furniture, casegoods, seating, and storage and partitioning systems for offices acquired HALCON, a Minnesota-based designer and manufacturer of precision-tailored wood furniture for the workplace. This acquisition would complement Steelcase’s wood products by enabling it to offer uncompromising design and master craftsmanship to work professionals and customers. Steelcase aimed to provide an extensive selection of solutions and services to support the way people and organizations want to work.  

To wrap up, the evolving workplace trends such as the rise of remote work and flexible office arrangements are expected to create immense opportunities in this domain.
