Furniture giant welcomes rappers interior design aims by saying united love to see what youd create but not everyone is convinced
Ikea has responded to Kanye Wests request to allow Kanye to create, put forward this Yeezy: a bottom big enough for West and all his celebrity friends.
West exposed his ambition to work with the Swedish flat-pack furniture powerhouse in an interrogation on BBC Radio 1 on Monday.
I. Have. To. Act. With. Ikea, he told presenter Annie Mac by phone from Los Angeles. With furniture, with interior design, for architecture.
Specifically, he had interest in turning his hand to a minimalist suite inside of a college dorm, with a TV built inside of the wall.
He was drawn to Ikea because of his goal of constituting his products most accessible, describing his mission in life as to do high-end and all this material, and bring it to the people.
He concluded by calling on Ikea to allow Kanye to create: Allow him to make this thing because you know what, I miss a couch that he makes, I crave a chair that he makes I crave more products from Ye.
Ikea Australia responded on Facebook belatedly on Tuesday night with the Yeezy: Hej Kanye, marriage love to see what youd establish … we could form you Famed!
The design three berths, clamped together was a including references to Wests controversial Famous video, which showed West, his wife Kim Kardashian, and other personalities naked and asleep in a monstrous plot together.
But the fans of Ikea Australia who responded to the post were by and large not in favour of the collaboration, with one proposing alternative solutions: the Knye toilet.
Dont do it. Ever, commented one Ikea love. Its likely the only thought that they are able to form me far removed from Ikea.
Another noted of the collaboration: Would it have a screw loose?
West have already been collaborated with the British fashion designer, Katie Eary, who has created textile products and tableware for Ikea in the past.
He told Annie Mac his point was to induce content across all subjects, and was dismissive of those who believed that he should restriction himself to music.
Its like telling Michaelangelo, I know you did this smoke angel, that was really good, but Michealangelo, I dont think you could paint a cow.
