In an interrogation with Radio 1, the rapper said he wants to collaborate with the Scandinavian label on cheap furniture, while petitioning to college students
In recent years, Kanye West has strenuously attempted to subdue the fad world. Hes launched his own label, Yeezy; collaborated with the favourite French ready-to-wear label APC; designed expensive sneakers for Adidas and Nike; and recently starred in Balmains brand-new autumn/ wintertime 2016 expedition. Now, it sounds the contentious rap superstar is likewise set on cornering the furniture sell by branding with Ikea.
I have to work with Ikea stimulate furniture for interior design, West said during a BBC Radio 1 interviewwith Annie Mac airing Monday night.
In a preview of the chitchat, BBC added West believed students would be keen for him to create a minimalist apartment inside a college dorm.
Yo Ikea, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing because you know what, I crave a bottom that he makes, I miss a chair that he makes, West said.
For Wests millions of admirers on Twitter, this news possibly doesnt passed as a huge amaze. Following a stay to the Scandinavian series headquarters in March, West tweeted:
West has another connection to the flatpack behemoth: he previously collaborated with British clothes designer Katie Eary, who created a series of textile products and tableware for Ikea.
In 2012, West propelled Donda, a nebulous fellowship identified after his late baby, Donda West, which he vaguely described as a motif company with the goal to realize concoctions and knows that people want and can afford an ethos that shares a lot in common with Ikea.
Ikea has so far declined to comment on a possible tie-in with West.
