Music lovers this one’s for you. IKEA has just announced that they will be launching a 20-piece joint collection with house music supergroup Swedish House Mafia. While fans may not have expected the group to be teaming up with the furniture store, the two powerhouses shared that they were inspired to make a collection that allows people to explore music and creativity at home and make everyday life easier for those who produce, perform, play, or listen to music.
Here, the limited collection, titled OBEGRÄNSAD, is built on the band’s insights into the needs of those starting up their music or creative career.
During the press interview, Swedish House Mafia mentioned, “Since we were kids, we have valued IKEA’s approach of making things affordable and available for a lot of people. We used to find a creative way to make IKEA furniture to accommodate our teenage lives as creatives, so the collaboration’s purpose was formed around our own personal journey in life.”
Whether you’re looking to produce or perform in your room, we can’t help but agree that the collection will definitely come in handy in elevating your space. Besides, why go to a studio when you can have your own private one in the comfort of your own home, right?
With that being said, some of the items that you can look forward to in the collection include LED work, wall and floor lamps, a clock; laptop, tablet, speaker and record stands; a desk, two options of shelving units, an armchair, four options of bags, including an accessory, a record and a laptop bag, a rug and sleepers in two sizes, a throw and a cushion cover. And following the success of Ikea’s FRAKTA bags that are said to be built to hold 100 vinyl records, Swedish House Mafia will also be releasing their own take on the IKEA FRAKTA bag as well.
Within the collection, you’ll also find unique shelving units that are perfect for you to place your amplifiers, as well as a desk with speaker stands and a pull-out shelf and not to mention stands for your laptop, tablets and speakers – so you can have more productivity in your room. used. As Swedish House Mafia put it:” the design in our collection features a timeless theme with a distinct trace of our DNA”. The solutions will easily add smart functionality to the existing space – or help build an affordable home studio from scratch.
The collection has yet to be released in Singapore, but it has been said that it will launch in the later part of October. Stay tuned for more updates.
