Ikea’s recently announced a brand new set of gamer-oriented furniture and accessories. The company has been busy designing it with collaborative help from Asus’s ROG Brand (Republic of Gamers). The new line-up features more than 30 products covering bigger buys such as desks and gaming chairs as well as mouse mats and other accouterments but one of their items is a little more stand-out than the rest.

One of the latest accessories to help keep your desk organized and take care of your headphones is this Lånespelare accessories stand in the form of a wooden hand. Reminiscent of an artist mannequin, it is built with individual carved parts with moveable joints so all of its fingers and thumb are poseable. This lets the user shape the hand into the perfect form to hold or store away whatever they want.  As Jon Porter put it in his article for theverge, it sounds ‘handy’!

The handy Lånespelare accessories stand is hot off of just one branch of the gaming line-up. In total, there are six product families: Gruppspel, Huvudspelare, Lånespelare, Matchspel, Uppspel, and Utespelare. 

The Huvudspelare products feature an affordable gaming chair (around$46) with a cheap complementary gaming desk (about $36). There are other gaming chair options included in the Utespelare and Matchspel lines but they will cost you a little more. Both are priced over the hundred-dollar mark at both roughly $108 and $155 respectively. 

If you have a lot of gear to get organized you might fancy a look at the Uppspel product family. There is a useful gaming pegboard to give everything its own place it costs around $36. Alternatively, you could go for the Uppspel gaming drawer unit instead if your budget is a little bigger, it is priced at around $93.

Some of the coolest accessories come from the Lånespelare family. In the selection, you will find a ring light that will set you back around $39, a retracting mouse bungee that is approximately $15, and a handy mug-holder for the side of your computer desk. Another product worth mention is the  Lånespelare multi-functional cushion/blanket which has a range of uses. It can be used as an over-the-shoulder blanket or even provide extra lumbar support with its cushioning.

The glaringly obvious benefit of the series line-up is that it is understated as gaming furniture goes. You don’t have any weird futuristic forms, industrial blocks, or garish RGB lighting typical of gaming furniture. It is affordably priced and pretty stylish comparably.  In fact, this is exactly what the collaborative effort between IKEA and ROG was geared towards producing, says Global Business Leader of Workspace Ewa Rychert.

”The needs of billions of gamers around the globe are very diverse, whereas the existing offer is rather technical and often perceived as masculine design-wise, despite around 46 percent of gamers being female,” Rychert says.

Right now, Ikea’s new gaming lineup is available in China, in Japan, it’ll launch in May, and then come to the rest of the world in October.
