Swedish multinational furniture company IKEA teased a collaboration with Virgil Abloh’s OFF-WHITE last June, revealing a reinterpretation of the brand’s iconic FRAKTA bag and a variety of rugs marked by Abloh’s signature quotation motif.
Since then, little details of the collaboration have not been revealed, until today, as IKEA has announced that it will live stream a conversation with Abloh on his latest creative endeavor.
A conversation about the work between the quotation marks. Join the live broadcast on www.ikea.today – April 30, 5:30PM EST #ikeaxvirgil @virgilabloh
