Virgil Abloh and Ikea have officially unveiled the U.S. launch of their collaboration, scome November 1st, Abloh’s designs will be released with limited-edition homeware, titled Markerad (Swedish for “marked”).
“There’s always an underlying message in my creations. A little bit of irony—and a human connection,” Abloh says of the collection.
Many of the soon-to-be sought after pieces, includes Virgil’s signature quoted texts; clocks (“TEMPORARY”), shopping bags (“SCULPTURE”), and verdant, turf-like rugs (“WET GRASS”). Additional pieces include Windsor chairs finished with door stop legs, glass cabinetry with red, nail-shaped pulls, even LED-lit Mona Lisa wall art, and an oversized rug designed to look like an Ikea receipt.
The collection will be available in all Ikea U.S. stores starting November 1, 2019. For more information, visit www.IKEA-USA.com/MARKERAD.
