On June 7, IKEA will hold its Democratic Design Days event, where the Swedish company will allow the public to get a closer and more detailed look into its designs and products. While the collaboration partners to appear and speak at the event are currently a secret, HYPEBEAST was able to get the exclusive on one of the upcoming persons, represented by the silhouette above. The individual, who many will speculate as Virgil Abloh of OFF-WHITE, speaks candidly about his approach to creation and the idea at its core.

The event will be held in Älmhult, Sweden and will be live-streamed on June 7, 3:30 p.m. CET at ikea.today/ddd. The Democratic Design Days event follows closely to the growing trend of re-fabricating and recycling IKEA’s iconic FRAKTA bag for style purposes — read more about the trend here.
