Developed by IKEA in collaboration with ASUS’ gaming brand Republic of Gamers (ROG), the Swedish furniture giant will launching its gaming range in Singapore on Nov 4.
The IKEA gaming range is targeted at PC gamers and consists of six different product line-ups – Uppspel, Lånespelare, Matchspel, Gruppspel, Utespelare and Huvudspelare.
These different product line-ups have over 30 different products including furniture, such as gaming desks and chairs. They also include accessories like a mug holder, a mouse bungee, a neck pillow and others. These gaming products also come in different price ranges to meet the needs of different gamers.
IKEA and ROG together designed all the Uppspel products. This Uppspel line-up includes the height-adjustable gaming desk (from S$899), drawer unit with castors (S$169), glass-door cabinet (S$129), a computer stand with castors (S$29.90) and even a poster (S$9.90).
Interestingly, the glass-door cabinet has a pegboard for its back. Thus, the four-piece pegboard accessories set ($14.90) – with one hook, one magnetic strip and two elastic straps – lets you configure the cabinet to your liking like storing a game controller.
The rest of the series is developed by IKEA based on the insights and knowledge gained from the IKEA-ASUS collaboration. This is to ensure IKEA’s gaming range meets the depth and breadth of PC gamers’ needs worldwide.
For instance, the Lånespelare series has an accessory stand (S$39.90), a mouse bungee (S$19.90), gaming mouse pads (from S$12.90) and even a multi-function cushion/blanket (S$39.90).
