Ikea and the Swedish synth and audio company, Teenage Engineering, have teamed up to create Frekvens (“frequency”), a collection of turntable, speaker and lighting system for the house, scheduled for release in June 2019.
The project is a self-contained party system that can be used wherever you want and at any time, giving you the chance to host your party everywhere you may be.
The design combines IKEA’s minimalism with Teenage Engineering’s fun use of bright colors, and of course, since is still an Ikea product, some assembly will be required.
Teenage Engineering’s Jesper Kouthoofd said: “Marcus [Engman, head of design at Ikea] got this idea that it’s kind of like a home roadie thing, like you could set up your own sound system, then I started thinking about how, a lot of Swedes, we go to Ikea when we have a party—to get candles, napkins. Maybe we could do something that’s really affordable so people can buy a sound system, including a light show—a complete party.”
Michael Nikolic, Creative Leader at Ikea of Sweden, revealed: “We are just starting to shape the collection; it’s a work in progress. Together we constantly get new ideas to solutions and products that we want to keep on exploring.”
The price for Frekvens hasn’t been confirmed yet, but the products of the collection are expected to cost from $5 to $99.
