A design-led skateboard has joined Ikea’s expansive line-up of affordable products.
The new addition is part of the Swedish retail giant’s new limited edition collection, SPÄNST.
Designed in collaboration with L.A designer Chris Stamp, the range combines minimalist Scandi design with urban street culture.
With products including a mesh wardrobe, transparent shoeboxes and a shoe rack for displaying skateboards and footwear, SPÄNST is poised to become a sell-out success with teenagers.
The skateboard features a barcode detail with the longitude and latitude coordinates for the first IKEA store in Sweden and the flagship Stampd store in L.A.
Chris says, “I grew up surfing and skating. Here in Cal, skating is more than transportation. It’s a culture and an intimate part of [our] DNA. I’m honoured to get the opportunity to design the first ever Ikea skateboard.”
However Chris’ favourite item is the LED light stick – a streamlined lamp that can be clipped onto the wall, or leaned against it.
“The light is just an awesome piece. You can use it in so many different realms, and the fact that you can charge it with your USB makes it really flexible – whether it’s on your wall with your smart phone adaptor or with your computer.”
SPÄNST will be available in Australian stores from 28 May 2018.
