If you’re a PC gamer, the amount of products catered to the hobby is extensive, but many products are garish. There aren’t many choices either. Do you want this black racing seat or this black racing seat, both of which refuse to blend in any room? It’s time for something functional that works with the rest of the room and won’t cost a ton.
The 30 products are divided across six product lines. The “UPPSPSEL” line is a direct collaboration between both brands, while the other five are wholly designed by IKEA, using information learned through the collaboration.
In Swedish, UPPSPSEL translates to “Play.” Other product lines use “Play” in different ways.
The full line of gaming products hasn’t been revealed yet, but you can expect gaming chairs and desks, as well as accessories such as a cup holder($10), ring light ($34.99), pegboard ($19.99), mouse bungee ($12.99), headphone stand ($24.99), and pillows ($9.99-$24.99). With different product lines, there are sure to be more products announced and maybe higher quality variants in different product lines.
The MATCHSPEL gaming chair ($189) is sleek, thin, and curved for ergonomic support, with a red metal support beam running down the length of the chair that provides a striking accent. The red is applied minimally elsewhere on the seat’s edge and the wheels for a subtle pop of color. There are eight chairs in the collection, with the three GRUPPSPEL chairs launching next January.
