back in 2018, IKEA announced a plethora of collaborations which included virgil abloh, adidas, olafur eliasson and stockholm-based electronics company teenage engineering among others. the latter presented the frekvens range, a collection consisting of LED spotlights that react to sound, portable speakers and tripod stands where you can attach everything in order to build your own unique setup, and obviously, all fully compatible with all teenage engineering’s synthesizers.
some years later, teenage engineering has release their own add-ons to the collection and have published the 3D CAD files that can be downloaded for free and used for 3D printing. ‘to all of you that bought a 3D-printer but don’t know what to print, teenage engineering gives you IKEA frekvens hacks.’

the teenage engineering frekvens — meaning frequency — collection was released on february 2020, available at selected IKEA stores. not being able to sell their collection, the electronics company decided to create their own add-ons to make the collection even more modular and playful. let’s say that they somehow hacked themselves and now want us to do it too.
there are 12 teenage engineering frekvens hacks, including handles and stands for the speakers, wheels for the lights and even a trolley to move your sound and light system around. each hack pack includes a ready-to-print model (stl), photo (jpg), and assembly instructions (pdf). the accessories are supposed to be printed on a prusa i3 MK3 3D-printer with PLA filament.
