More than two years ago, Ikea announced a collaboration with Sweden’s teenage engineering to develop a range of lighting and speaker modules. Now the limited edition Ikea speakers and lights–the Frekvens collection–are now on sale.

“Frekvens introduces sound into the home in a new way,” said teenage engineering’s Jesper Kouthoofd in a press release. “It is very simple, fun and playful – bringing a retro and unique aesthetic to Ikea not seen before. The range can help anyone become a home roadie, setting up your own sound system and light show with minimal effort.”

The collection comprises 27 modules that can be mixed and matched to create a personal sound and light experience. There’s almost nothing known so far on performance but here are the basics.

The Frekvens speaker has 8 x 4 x 4 in (20 x 10 x 10 cm) dimensions and comes in yellow/black or red/black.
