The project is part of a collaboration with Swedish House Mafia, a Swedish group made up of DJs and music producers. At IKEA they did not want a turntable like the ones currently being manufactured and which, according to that engineer, “they almost want to hide”, and instead they opted for a design that was “a very physical manifestation of music“.

The result is clearly visible: the turntable is very square and very sober, but also minimalist. At IKEA they also wanted to offer a turntable with an affordable price to make it popular with the general public.
