IKEA has announced a collection in collaboration with nine Latin American artists and creatives. The currently untitled range, which will include products that encourage and help people to celebrate life, socialize, and set the atmosphere for a great time, is set to be released in 2023.

The Swedish furniture giants recently opened stores in the Dominican Republic and Mexico, and the company is about to launch in more countries including Chile, Colombia, and Peru. As IKEA expands even further, the brand is committed to learning more about heritage, culture, and life at home from parts of the world—and this collaboration is a celebration of connecting directly with creatives from backgrounds of Latin American heritage. 

“This collection is about amplifying and celebrating the talents of our collaborators ranging from a variety of creative fields including design, fashion, art, food and architecture” says Friso Wiersma, Designer at IKEA of Sweden AB, in a press release. “We were curious to learn what happens when different traditions in culture, crafts and expressions are combined with the creative scenes of design, fashion, food, architecture and art. “
