“Egentid” is a Swedish expression for “time for yourself”. It is a highly valued time in a busy world. It means time for thoughts and reflections and it can be a moment in-between, just like as a nice cup of tea.

Working with IKEA Food, BAS has produced strategic design packaging for all of IKEA Foods assortment types inspiring communication and the history around Swedish Food Culture and Swedish phenomenon. The store assortment has also been distributed in an entirely new way that will challenge the traditional assortment methods making it easier for customers to find what they are looking for.

The idea is built with a playful attitude in mind and the revised design in combination with the storytelling will build curiosity around the new products. The theme has obvious connections to food with a whimsical underlying tone.

The focus has not only been on the store and product design, in parallel IKEA Food have developed their product assortment with a strong focus towards health, environmental awareness, quality and value for money. More products are planned for launch over the coming years so be sure to keep an eye out for some delightful surprises when you visit IKEA Food.
