Hackers Help: Is this an older PAX closet?


In an old blog I found this hack:

PAX closet for workstation?

The author comments that the base of this work station are fitted wall PAX white (2 and 1 50x35x70 100x35x70 mounted without socket) and 5 doors PAX BALLSTAD, but I’ve not found them on IKEA’s web. Is there a similar model? Thanks, hackers.

Hi Josemari,

I don’t think the frames of the base are PAX wardrobes. Most likely the old FAKTUM/ AKURUM, if you take a closer look at the project photos here. The hinged doors could be PAX though. ~ Jules

    It’s an older series of Pax. I bought the same frames about 8 years ago and I think it was discontinued about 5 years ago

    Some years ago there used to be short PAX hanging elements that were intended to be hung over your bed. The original blog post of that project is from 2009 – which should be the right timeframe. They are no more. I think IKEA gave them up in 2011 or so.

    I’d simply use some other cabinet with the right size – there should be something that fits in either the Besta series or in the new Method kitchen series or take a look at bathroom or kid’s cabinets. It’s not as if a specific model of cabinet is required.
