    I like that Matchspel chair, a nice departure to sensible chair setup and layout.

    All in all, gaudy branding aside, that's quite a nice spread they have.

    Table is quite expensive for my tastes, ngl. You can probably assemble something for much cheaper.

    I like the look of the desk - I am a big fan of the Bekant desk system, and could be tempted to upgrade my current fixed-height Bekant with one of these. I've considered upgrading to the motorised stand anyway...if this had the same quality it would be a great option.

    Personally, I think the chairs both look awful mind - I generally dislike mesh chairs at the best of times, and that other one has that really horrible diamond leather (plastic) look. That is very much a personal thing though I have friends who would really love that look!

    Will be interesting to see if they make it over to the UK, with the appropriate price increase of course!

    Not sure if the "industrial" aesthetic reminds me more of a Deus Ex black market laboratory or if China is just using this to sell off its evil biowarfare labs kit at a profit now they have made their supersoldiers.

    Honestly apart from the chair it doesn't seem too bad but not sure I'd rush out for it over other brands.

    As to the chair... it's ok price wise but looking at it it's basically a markus (edit: seems like it might be closer to the JÄRVFJÄLLET, both use the same 'seat base/leg setup though) with a slightly different design back (still fundamentally same concept/shape) and I've got to be honest, I wouldn't recommend anyone buying a markus for long term use, the 'seat' is pretty poor for comfort.

    Tat, tat and more tat, typical IKEA junk that (probably) utilises some awesome engineering talent to make furniture as cheaply and shoddily as they can push it to, while still barely meeting the most basic spec and safety requirements...

    That cup holder won't actually 'hold' your cup unless it's glued to the desktop. It'd simply tip over.
    It's only listed as a "mug stand", as if we all have mugs that would fall over without one of these...

    It was great in the 1980s - Cars, beadspreads, Gary Numan's 'Telekon' album... It still works great if done right but like most RGB, it is often poorly implemented, misused and abused.

    I feel like I should be grumpier over this, but perhaps am not yet old enough to justify it...

    The table looks pretty cool, but not liking the chair personally. If the table gets a pricing at least similar to what it's converted from Yen, then it's a pretty good deal to be fair.
