Saint Heron also revealed that the joint effort will tie in with its ongoing project of “building the community that we wish to see exist through music, visual art, and performance art mediums.

A statement from Marcus Engam, head of design at IKEA Range & Supply, Reads: “Contemporary art is a huge part of people’s [lives] today. 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.”

Knowles shared that although she is still working on new music, it is not the main focus for her at the moment. “I’m clear within myself that I’m not interested in entertainment at this moment. That might change. There might be a moment where I decide, ‘Hey, I love the game.’ For right now, I’m not [there].
