Cranes in the living room?
Solange Knowles branches out into the world of interior design, merging her cultural hub Saint Heron with IKEA for the new business venture.
According to a press statement, Knowles and IKEA’s co-curator Armina Mussa are joining forces to create original multimedia installations that creatively reflect on intersectional art and culture themes, foster thoughtful fellowship, and push the conversations of our communities to the forefront.
“Contemporary art is a huge part of people’s life today,” says Marcus Engman, Head of Design at IKEA Range & Supply. “At IKEA we are curious about the creative space in between architecture, design, art and music and how that could come alive in the homes of the many people. This is what we want to explore together with Saint Heron.”
The A Seat at the Table artist promises the collaboration will “[explore] architectural and design objects with multifunctional use.”
Knowles and her genius brand Saint Heron have previously lent their creative vision to Mickalene Thomas, Jacolby Satterwhite, Kenesha Sneed, and Phlemuns.
