swedish furniture giant IKEA fills countless homes across the world with everything from the ubiquitous ‘billy’ bookcase to brightly-colored bathroom accessories. now, they’ve expanded their reach digitally, by introducing over 100 emoticons for iphone and andriod devices.

 

the smartphone app aims to revamp communication between friends and family by offering roommates, partners and siblings the chance to simply and visually tell each other something about the home. has your husband left a mess on the ‘lack’ table?; did you brother make the ketchup stain on the living room’s ‘klippan’ couch?; has your daughter hung up her laundry from the ‘mulig’ yet? — ‘it’s simply impossible to feel offended if you tell some one to clean up if you say it with IKEA emoticons’, the brand notes. take a look at a selection from the series, the full set here, and the short video below explaining their design and functionality.
