Announced as a project to be released in Älmhult, Sweden at the Scandinavian brand's annual 'Democratic Design Day,' the IKEA Virgil Abloh collaboration will see the creation of a millennial-focused furniture line that be designed with a view of moving into one's first home.

The collaborative collection's announcement featured Abloh's presentation of his take on the furniture brand's iconic Frakta bag, which has been the subject of much Instagram-driven DIY inspiration recently, after Balenciaga announced it's plans to create a £1,705 version of the ultra-cheap shopping bag. Abloh's own iteration of the Frakta bag was made out of cardboard and featured the words "SCULPTURE" written on the the side.

The collection will be an official partnership between IKEA and Virgil's Off-White brand, which recently opened it's first North American store in Toronto's posh Yorkville neighborhood.
