For its latest round of commercials for Ikea, Crispin Porter + Bogusky tapped Swedish design and directorial collective StyleWar to shoot all that Swedish furniture. Stockholm-based StyleWar -- who are represented by Smuggler in the U.S. -- were featured in this year's Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase in Cannes thanks to a surreal mixed media video for Moby's "In This World."
