IKEA Will Soon Be Selling a New Record Player

IKEA have announced that they will be launching their own record player next year, but it's not like the record players we're use to. 

Set to feature as part of their FREKVENS (“frequency”) line, the record player has been developed – along with a number of other electrical products – with Teenage Engineering, who are “a collective of creatives known for making music”. 

IKEA have now revealed that the FREKVENS collection will go on sale in stores worldwide in February 2019. The record player will feature alongside such products as an ‘electronic choir’, ‘party lighting’ and, as the press release states, “everything else you need in order to throw a really good music party wherever you are”.

Speaking about the thinking behind the new line, IKEA Range & Supply’s Creative Leader Michael Nikolic said: “We know that for younger people spontaneity is key. The idea of gathering some friends could become a reality in minutes. What is then needed at home? Or maybe you want to bring along the party somewhere else?

From sketch to final prototype, we are checking in on #FREKVENS! Together with Teenage Engineering the aim is to create products so that you can host your party, wherever you may be. During Diseño Democrático this week we are showing the prototypes of the collection. Love it?
