Furniture giant welcomes rappers interior design aims by saying wed love to see what youd establish but not everyone is convinced
Ikea has addressed Kanye Wests request to allow Kanye to create, proposing the Yeezy: a bottom big enough for West and all his fame friends.
West divulged his ambition to work with the Swedish flat-pack furniture powerhouse in an interview on BBC Radio 1 on Monday.
I. Have. To. Wield. 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 accommodation inside of a college dorm, with a Tv built inside of the wall.
He was drawn to Ikea because of his goal of reaching his products more accessible, describing his mission in life as to do high-end and all this stuff, and make it to the people.
He concluded by announcing on Ikea to allow Kanye to create: Allow him to make this thing because you know what, I miss a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes I want more makes from Ye.
Ikea Australia responded on Facebook late on Tuesday night with the Yeezy: Hej Kanye, united love to see what youd form … we could shape you Far-famed!
The design three bunks, clamped together was a including references to Wests contentious Famous video, which pictured West, his wife Kim Kardashian, and other fames naked and asleep in a giant berth together.
But the devotees of Ikea Australia who responded to the post were by and large not in favour of the collaboration, with one proposing an alternative: the Knye toilet.
Dont do it. Ever, commented one Ikea follower. Its maybe the only occasion that they are able to draw me stay away from Ikea.
Another mentioned of the collaboration: Would it have a screw loose?
West has previously collaborated with the British fashion designer, Katie Eary, who has created textiles and tableware for Ikea in the past.
He told Annie Mac his objective was to oblige content across all self-disciplines, and was dismissive of the individuals who felt he should restraint himself to music.
Its like telling Michaelangelo, I know you did this dope angel, that was really good, but Michealangelo, I dont think you could cover a cow.
