A staple in most homes around the world these days, especially DJs and vinyl collectors, IKEA’s renowned KALLAX unit is a must-have installation for the modern household.
Hailed for its convenience and versatility, the KALLAX has entered a new level of potential adoration thanks to the latest collaboration between the Swedish furniture giant and the globally revered EDM trio Swedish House Mafia.
The OBEGRÄNSAD (“unlimited” in Swedish) edition of the KALLAX includes two rows of four cubes, topped with two slimmer sections across the length of the shelves. The top shelf allows space for turntables, mixers and more.
James Futcher, IKEA’s Creative Leader, says: “Many aspire to be a DJ, but not everybody has the opportunity to perform in front of a big crowd,” adding: “We learned a lot from Swedish House Mafia about the setups needed to make music. During the pandemic, we also started seeing people live stream DJ sets from their homes and studios using KALLAX as their stage. And we thought, ‘There’s a fun opportunity to do a small update of an iconic product for a collaboration around making and listening to music.'”
The OBEGRÄNSAD collection launches in stores in October. For more information, visit IKEA’s website.
