Ikea’s creative lead Henrik Most and Off-White’s Virgil Abloh presented the design themes informing their collaborative collection, titled “MARKERAD.” Live-streamed from a studio in New York, Most and Abloh walked through the collection and responded to the audience posting questions on YouTube.
Items Virgil previewed included a chair, a glass storage display, pillows two carpets and an orange doorstop. Tapping into another collaboration, Abloh stocked with several pairs of Nike x Off-White Presto sneakers.
Abloh noted that the products are prototypes and still may be adjusted before launching. “I have another few months before I have to stop and put the pencil down,” explains Abloh.
Most reaffirmed that the collection will be affordable with pricing in line with similar items sold by the chain. There’s no exact timing yet for the collection to launch, but Most said it will be produced some time in 2019
