• Obegransad-1
  • Obegransad-2

It may surprise you, as it did me, that Ikea hasn’t made a record player since 1973. Luckily for us, that will change later this year. In partnership with Swedish House Mafia, these two Nordic giants have teamed up on the Obegransad record player. At its core, the Obegransad is a standard record player for everyday use. But, design-wise, it’s packing a lot of punch. An austere black box silhouette, it’s a minimalist’s dream and would sit comfortably on your MALM desk or coffee table. Small improvements have been made to the design for an enhanced experience, including inlaying the platter (where the record sits) slightly into the body of the Obegransad to avoid additional vibrations. No price has been announced yet, but we’re sure it’ll combine quality design at an affordable price for everyone.


We don’t know much about math. But we do know that when Keeper’s Heart announced they’d be making an Irish Whiskey + Bourbon bottle, we were intrigued. It’s here, and it is a simply stunning combination. Brian Nation (formerly of Jameson, Redbreast and Midleton whiskeys and now Keeper’s Heart master distiller) teamed up with David Perkins (the founder of High West distillery) to create this smooth, yet complex combo of Irish + Bourbon. It’s truly a marriage made in whiskey heaven. Pick up a bottle today.
