Älmhult, Sweden – Whether you stream your music on Apple Music, Spotify, TIDAL or somewhere in between, the influx of new tunes deserves an auditory experience worthy of the eardrum.
“Sound is a powerful part of our identity – whether it’s hearing your baby’s laughter or listening to that 80s hit your mom loved, it is a deeply emotional part of all our lives,” says Tad Toulis, Vice President of Design at Sonos.
“This partnership has always been about our two companies’ shared passion, values and knowledge. IKEA and Sonos recognize the importance of great sound and its potential to positively affect life at home for the many people. We set out to create products neither of us would or could develop independently. To this end, since music and light are both instrumental in creating a sense of place, we developed a product that can deliver both – the SYMFONISK lamp speaker,” he continued.
For IKEA, the new partnership aligns with their vision to be more prevalent in smart homes across the country.
“Creating atmosphere and convenience are central in the creation of the IKEA Home Smart concept, and the SYMFONISK range are perfectly designed with that in mind. IKEA is always looking for ideas that improve life at home. By integrating technology with home furnishing products and solutions we can do that in an even better way,” Björn Block, Business Leader for IKEA Home Smart at IKEA of Sweden, chimed in.
The products will be released at IKEA stores and IKEA.com with the SYMFONISK lamp-speaker running for $179 and the SYMFONISK book-shelf retailing for $99.
