Following the recent Virgil Abloh x IKEA “FITTING ROOMS” pop-up in London last month, the designer has just unveiled another collaboration with the Swedish furniture company. Dubbed the “MARKERAD” collection, the limited-edition range has been created to cater to new homeowners offering fashionable budget-friendly items. Abloh stated in a press release:
“I’m really glad that MARKERAD is now ready to meet with people and I look forward to see how these everyday objects will enter people’s homes and hopefully add an emotional value to them because that has been the ethos of the whole collection. In the same way you might hang a piece of art work on your wall, art can bleed into objects like a chair, table or rug. That was my initial problem to solve when creating this collection together with IKEA.”
The collaboration features items like a low and high pile rug, a medium and large shopping bag, a backlit Mona Lisa artwork USB and more. The Virgil Abloh x IKEA MARKERAD collection will be available for purchase in-store on November 1 where prices range from $24.99 USD to $249 USD.
