IKEA Swedish House Mafia OBEGRANSAD record player

The name of the collection, OBEGRÄNSAD, was first unveiled at the IKEA Festival in Milan. OBEGRÄNSAD is Swedish for unlimited, and the name refers to the collection’s target audience: people with a limited budget but unlimited creativity. With the OBEGRÄNSAD collection, IKEA and Swedish House Mafia aim to democratize music production at home and allow many to unleash their passions and creativity.

The unveilings include three key products from the collection: a desk, an armchair and a record player. The OBEGRÄNSAD collection has the versatility to provide solutions for the home setup whether you are a music producer, DJ or musician. It offers solutions to simply relax and listen to music.

“The design supports creating, playing, enjoying and even just setting the mood,” says Swedish House Mafia.

A desk with speaker stands

The OBEGRÄNSAD agency is a core solution for emerging music creators. The collection responds to the trend to create professional quality music at home and is essential for creating the perfect home studio at an affordable price.

“Sound is everything in music, and we’ve added two speaker stands on the desk to bring the speakers to ear level. We’ve also added a pull-out shelf under the desktop. This functionality allows you to have a midi keyboard, for example, within reach , while maximizing the space on your desk,” says IKEA designer Friso Wiersma.

The OBEGRÄNSAD armchair represents the perfect balance between form and function that is central to this collaboration. The minimalist design provides pure elegance and the adjustable straps enhance functionality, allowing to refine the comfort level. The armchair shows the part of the collection that supports the creation of a relaxing environment to enjoy your music experience at home.

“Armchairs are a place to relax, think and put yourself in the creative flow. The OBEGRÄNSAD armchair shows the importance of comfort,” says James Futcher, Creative Leader at IKEA of Sweden.

The UNLIMITED turntable

The OBEGRÄNSAD turntable celebrates the timeless joy of the vinyl listening experience. The record player has a sleek, minimalist style and works together with the ENEBY speaker.

“The solid, sturdy design gives the player a presence in the room. It conveys the physicality of music in the collection, making it really claim space with the attitude of music woven into it – rather than merging it,” says Friso Wiersma.

The OBEGRÄNSAD collection will be launched worldwide in the fall of 2022. With this collection, IKEA and Swedish House Mafia explore the topic of music and creativity at home to make everyday life easier for the many people who listen to and make music. The collection will feature more than 20 home furnishing products, helping living spaces better meet the needs of music makers and music fans around the world.
