The pop-up shop goes under the name “STILL LOADING”, and will be an exhibition with a limited number of rugs from the collaboration between IKEA and Virgil Abloh. There will be four different limited edition rugs exhibited and sold in the pop-up shop and these will not be part of the full MARKERAD collection that is launching in 2019.
Paris is the first stop for the pop-up shop, followed by three additional cities in the world – which ones and when still remain to be revealed.
These items are made in a limited number and together with the thinking behind each rug I believe they can become art pieces you put on the wall just as much as functional objects in a home. Like, “Hey! I own this coveted piece”, says Virgil Abloh
What: Pre-launch “STILL LOADING” of four different rugs from the collaboration between IKEA and Virgil Abloh. A limited number of rugs will be available for purchase.
