The tiny house trend is experiencing a renewed upswing due to the corona pandemic. Large corporations like Ikea are now planning their own versions of the small houses and are working with established providers like Escape Homes.
According to a statement by the company in the online magazine “Curbed.com”, the small house on wheels was inspired by “sustainability and innovation”. “We want to meet the needs of today’s generation without endangering the needs of future generations,” says Jennifer Keesson, sustainability manager at Ikea.
The collaboration between Ikea and Escape Homes is based on a 17 square meter tiny house from Escape Home, the Vista Boho XL model. The Tiny House costs the equivalent of 40,000 euros and contains a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom. The Ikea version of the Tiny House is now being offered for 53,400 euros.
