In May, we were contacted by representatives from IKEA who were interested in purchasing our pallet collars, but not for the usual reasons. Pallet Collars are typically used to protect goods placed on a pallet during transportation or for warehouse racking safety. IKEA wanted to use them in a very different way, to create furniture for the Boston Calling Music Festival.
Our pallet collars appealed to IKEA because they are easy to stack, assemble, and transport, which makes them perfect for building temporary furniture. They were able to create benches, bars, ping pong tables, DJ stands, and dining tables.
The unique uses amazed our representatives at the festival. Hats off to IKEA for using our collars in an imaginative, efficient, and utilitarian way.
