Kanye West revealed that he wants to collaborate with IKEA in an interview on BBC Radio 1.
“I have to Work with IKEA – make furniture for interior design, for architecture..” he said. “Yo IKEA, allow Kanye to create, allow him to make this thing.”
As he believed people would buy things he made, the rapper continued, “Because you know what, I want a bed that he makes, I want a chair that he makes – I want more products from Ye,”
IKEA then responded through their IKEA Australia’s Facebook page. They posted a picture showing what their collaboration will probably look like with caption saying, “Hej Kanye, we’d love to see what you’d create… we could make you Famous!”
Bad news for Kanye, their collaboration will probably not happen soon as the company has reportedly stated in an interview with CNBC that they “are really flattered for the attention around the visit, and also in Kanye West’s high interest in IKEA. There have been many speculations around potential plans for future collaborations, but we can confirm that we have no collaboration at this moment.”
