In September 2021, IKEA and Swedish house music supergroup Swedish House Mafia announced a collaboration on a collection of music-related home furnishing solutions, designed with music producers, DJs, and all creators in mind.
Fast forward to May 2022, IKEA has revealed that the IKEA x Swedish House Mafia Collection will include over 20 furniture pieces, interior solutions, and accessories, and the first products from the collection: Swedish House Mafia remixed versions of the iconic FRAKTA bag.
There is not one, not two but three new IKEA FRAKTA bags, and they include a small bag for cables, cords and other accessories commonly use for music creation, a padded shoulder bag that could fit a laptop, and one larger bag for vinyl records.
Interestingly, the vinyl records bag is not always a large bag; when not carrying vinyl records, it can remain in a small form that can fit a laptop plus a few more things. A quick zip and it can transform into a handy bring-around small bag into a large, perfectly square in shape bag for holding vinyl records.
The remaining products will be revealed on June 09, 2022, as part of the IKEA Festival at Milan Design Week. Meanwhile, you can learn more about the Swedish House Mafia FRAKTA bag HERE.
