This week marks almost a year to the date that IKEA announced its highly anticipated collaboration with Solange Knowles’ Saint Heron company, and now the Scandinavian home goods retailer is back with an update about its creative partnership with the multi-faceted entertainer’s inclusive cultural hub.

In a press release, IKEA introduced as a forthcoming series of home goods that “explores how inspiration from music, arts, fashion, urban culture, architecture, sounds and aesthetics can come alive and be combined with functional home design.”

The central concept behind GÅTFULL revolves around the exploration of light, matter, space and time. The result will be a collection of items that skillfully merge function and aesthetic appeal while thoroughly representing what makes us feel most at ease in our home spaces.

IKEA also offered a glimpse into the blueprint that will take GÅTFULL from the drawing board to life.

“Being visionary and open, reflecting about how the human mind works and perceives things in various ways, experimenting with new materials, different colors and seeing product development in a new light has been other central components of the creative process that will result in the upcoming collection,” the company explained. IKEA x Saint Heron’s GÅTFULL collection will be presented in 2021, one year after the brand debuts its small space furniture line in Hong Kong and Japan.

But in the meantime, there are plenty of other IKEA collabs in the works. Hitting stores in June is their adorably weird capsule collection with Darcel Disappoints and French retailer Colette.

Earlier this year, the company launched its ÖVERALLT collection, a series of tableware, textile, seating options and more that reflect the diverse cultures of the African architects, designers, and artists who created the products. There’s also this ultra-fab, colorful line of furniture and other home accessories that hit stores this past February, plus its infinitely hackable DELKATIG collaboration with Tom Dixon.
