Ikego rebuilds your relationship with objects in a sustainable and fun way.
Today most products are made from parts that are
- hard to produce,
- single purpose,
- closed source
making them difficult to repair or reuse.
Ikego designs products from parts that are
- easy to produce,
- open source
Wait. Multipurpose? Yes! Ikego basically works like LEGO® bricks, only for the real world. Our parts work in different solutions, enabling endless reuse, upgrade and repair.
“Trash means something doesn’t have enough information to tell you how to reuse it. There is no trash in a LEGO room (…) one of the things coming is eliminating technical trash through reuse of the building blocks.”
Neil Gershenfeld (MIT, Center for bits and atoms), source
How it works
“Like a decentralized collaborative IKEA, built by many.”
Ikego builds a community of users, creators and sellers.
Buy products off the shelf or as local make.
Invent and share new models and parts, and build a business around it. Start here
Manufacturers large and small can produce and sell Ikego products. Learn more
Ikego models are deliberately designed to be easy to make yourself, if you enjoy that.
The Ikego flow:
are added potentially by you
great models that are manufactured and sold to customers
The system is driven by #OpenInnovation. Everyone can help it grow.
How Is this Sustainable?
