You’ve just moved into your new place. And now it’s time to find the things that’ll make it really feel like yours.

Make your mark with MARKERAD, a limited edition collection designed in collaboration with world-renowned creative Virgil Abloh. Together we’ve updated a range of everyday objects – from clocks to chairs – with the kind of striking style that can help any home stand out.

“The ethos of the collection is to add an artful quality to anonymous objects.”

Made to make a statement

MARKERAD takes classic minimalist designs and builds on them with the artistic references and subversive elements typical of Virgil’s work, with his iconic quotation marks found throughout. They add a sense of irony into the products we’ve produced – perfect for people trying to build a home with a little high-fashion edge, or looking to freshen up the one they already have.

“It’s about elevating the anonymous, everyday icons that we use without noticing. When we put a doorstop on one of the legs of an ordinary chair we create something unexpected – an interruption.”

- Virgil Abloh

“Virgil takes modern design into a contemporary context. By interpreting history and tradition in his own unique way, he creates design which very much appeals to our time.”

- Henrik Most, Creative Leader at IKEA
