Right. So Swedish furniture behemoth Ikea is launching a new line of gaming furniture.
This range includes six products, one of which – the Uppspel gaming chair – was created in collaboration with Asus' Republic of Gamers (ROG) brand. There's also the Lånespelare headset holder, the Matchspel and Huvudspelare chairs, as well as the Gruppspel and Utespelare desks
These products are going to be available around the world from October 2021.
“We believe there’s a lot to be done to democratise the gaming experience”, Ikea's global business leader for its worksplace division, Ewa Rychert, said.
"Now we take the first step on our gaming journey, and we do it by presenting affordable, high-performing gaming products and complete solutions that we hope reflect people’s personality and taste”.
Kris Huang, the GM of Asus' games accessory business, added: “Gamers globally know and love the Republic of Gamers brand and they trust it to deliver the most exciting gaming innovations in the market. Our new partnership with the experts at Ikea will allow Republic of Gamers to find new and interesting ways to delight gamers in and around the home.”
