Furniture giant greets rappers interior design goals by saying united love to see what youd compose but not everyone is convinced
Ikea has responded to Kanye Wests request to allow Kanye to create, put forward this Yeezy: a couch big enough for West and all his luminary friends.
West disclosed his ambition to work with the Swedish flat-pack furniture powerhouse in an interrogation on BBC Radio 1 on Monday.
I. Have. To. Work. 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 hands to a minimalist apartment inside of a college dormitory, with a TV built inside of the wall.
He was drawn to Ikea because of his objective of establishing his produces more accessible, describing his mission in life as to do high-end and all this stuff, and accompany 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 crave a couch that he makes, I crave a chair that he makes I crave more produces from Ye.
Ikea Australia responded on Facebook late on Tuesday night with the Yeezy: Hej Kanye, united love to see what youd compose … we could form you Famous!
The design three couches, bolt together was a reference to Wests contentious Famous video, which pictured West, his wife Kim Kardashian, and other personalities naked and asleep in a giant couch together.
But the followers 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.

Another observation of the collaboration: Would it have a screw loose?
West has previously 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 objective was to form content across all subjects, and was scornful of those who believed that he should restriction himself to music.
