Working in collaboration with ASUS Republic of Gamers (ROG), IKEA has developed a range of gaming furniture and accessories designed to be attractive, useful, and affordable. According to a press release from IKEA, there will be a total of 30 products in the new line. These will first be released in China in February 2021, and then made available in other IKEA markets as of October 2021.
According to SlashGear, IKEA will be working with ROG to produce a number of gamer-focused products, including chairs, desks, cupholders, and ring lights. ROG’s previous gaming chairs have received great reviews from gamers and has been featured in a number of YouTube assembly videos, but this will be ROG’s first serious foray into the world of furniture.
Looking at the Chinese IKEA site reveals the new FREDDE desk, a “perfect gaming station,” which features cup holders, side panels, and lighting. The new UTELSEPLARE / MATCHSPEl set is an all-in-one desk, chair, and drawer collection.
Other new accessories include a screw-on mug holder, a simple attachable neck pillow, and, of course, a line of gaming mousepads. All the furniture and accessories are designed in IKEA’s typical, minimalist style. Perhaps the strangest new product is an articulated wooden hand that serves as an accessories stand.
