Ikea x Virgil Abloh: MARKERAD Collection

Posted on October 02, 2019

Make your mark with MARKERAD, a limited-edition collection designed in collaboration with famed designer Virgil Abloh. Developed with millennial, new homeowners in mind – whether living as singles, couples, or co-living – this collection offers a way to make a statement in the home with budget-friendly and fashionable objects.

Created with democratic design in mind, this collection fuses functionality with street cred and high cultural references, turning everyday objects like a table, chair, mirror and clock into design icons. Available on November 1, Abloh brings his unexpected, artistic references and deconstructive elements – such as his iconic quotation marks – to each piece in the MARKERAD collection.

“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,” said Virgil Abloh.” Because that has been the ethos of the whole collection. In the same way you might hang a piece of artwork 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”.
