IKEA are launching their own record player series in an unexpected collaboration with Teenage Engineering, who are “a collective of creatives known for making music.”
The Swedish furniture company recently teased a look at their FREKVENS (frequency) line a few weeks back and have now confirmed that the new line will include “products such as an electronic choir, vinyl player, party lighting and everything else you need in order to throw a really good music party wherever you are.”
Speaking about the thinking behind the new line, IKEA Range & Supply’s Creative Leader Michael Nikolic said in a press release: “We know that for younger people spontaneity is key. The idea of gathering some friends could become a reality in minutes. What is then needed at home? Or maybe you want to bring along the party somewhere else?
“Together with Teenage Engineering we want to explore the possibilities of bringing the party with you and what else you need for a great party.”
FREKVENS is expected to be available globally by February 2019.
