As reported back in February, IKEA and creative collective Teenage Engineering developed a must-have collection that has partying at its center. Now, AdAge reports that the collaboration is due for a June 2019 release with a price range of $5 to $99.

The publication also talked to one of Teenage Engineering’s founders, Jesper Kouthoofd, and learned that he “started thinking about how, a lot of Swedes, we go to Ikea when we have a party–to get candles, napkins. Maybe we could do something that’s really affordable so people can buy a sound system, including a light show–a complete party.”

Together the two firms did just that and the images of the collection, seen at the top of this post, showcase the Bauhaus-influenced pieces in bold primary colors. The Swedish retailer first began working with Teenage Engineering’s audio labs about two years ago and eventually came up up with the FREKVENS collection.

Comprised of sound systems and decorative items, the upcoming range features a speaker, vinyl player and party lighting.

“We know that for younger people spontaneity is key,” says Michael Nikolic, the creative leader at IKEA Range & Supply. “Together with Teenage Engineering, we want to explore the possibilities of bringing the party with you and what else you need for a great party.”

Flip through the gallery and look for the FREKVENS collection to hit IKEA stores in June 2019 with prices ranging from $5 to $99.
