The group of music-focused products from the companies is called FREKVENS (Swedish for "frequency," as noted by HUH) and includes the aforementioned record player, party lighting, and something called an "electronic choir." So, are you ready to put an IKEA turntable atop your IKEA table?
Teenage Engineering designs speakers and various electronic instruments, and the voguish link-up with IKEA is centered around the idea of a veritable party-on-the-go: Get all your friends together and groove out to some jams in a relaxed party atmosphere that's quick and easy to set up.
"The idea of gathering some friends could become a reality in minutes," says creative leader Michael Nikolic, as reported by Exclaim. "Maybe you want to bring ... the party somewhere else? Together with Teenage Engineering we want to explore the possibilities of bringing the party with you."
Party on. See more below:
