High Snobiety reports, Abloh live-streamed to followers a sneak peek of the Off-White x IKEA collaboration. From an undisclosed location Virgil walked fans through what appears to be a furniture line inspired by the digital age replete with message digs against the FCC in support for #NetNuetrality.
Virgil shared a selection of prototypes, including privacy-free display cabinets and floating mirrors with the word “distortion” written in the corner.
Stating that the aim is to make an affordable collection for millennials, Virgil promised that the collection will retail at the typical IKEA price points.

Some of you guessed it! @virgilabloh @off____white prototyping a fresh take on the FRAKTA bag in IKEA’s very own prototype shop in Älmhult. "We’re in a moment where IKEA is transcending, and people are bringing this “do it yourself” culture” to the blue bag. What I’m most interested in is doing that process in partnership with the brand. It’s allowing me to put my opinion on a classic. It’s unique, and distinctly as much of off-white as it's IKEA". Photo @piotrniepsuj . #IKEAtoday #Collaborationpartner #virgilabloh #offwhite #IKEADDD
