Default IKEA in Cold War Poland

I'm reading Malcom Gladwell's David and Goliath and I learned that IKEA manufactured parts for its flat-pack furniture kits in Poland during the Cold War. I'd not come across this tidbit in any of my years of T2k-inspired research on Poland.

https://www.bbc.com/news/business-30...0and%20pencils.

I wonder of this business relationship was ever exploited by intelligence services, of Sweden, Poland, or a third party. I've got to imagine that some intel agency at least tried.

Maybe this could be useful as an "in" for a foreign intelligence agent PC/NPC in a Polish-based T2k campaign.

As a side note, maybe I can use this info and my wife's IKEA fandom to win her over to T2k now.
