IKEA x Sonos Tease Prototypes Of Speakers That Double Up As Shelving Decks
By Izza Sofia, 11 Jun 2018
Sonos and IKEA announced their partnership last year that they are collaborating on a smart speaker.
The collaboration is now bearing fruit as the duo displayed the non-functional prototypes at IKEA’s Democratic Design Days event. It shows what customers can expect from IKEA’s ‘SYMFONISK’ range.
The range sees a small and sleek black speaker which you can attach to the wall. The speaker doubles up as a shelf too. Other speakers come with curved ends or made of wood.
Bear in mind that these speakers are just prototypes, so the final products may or may not lookalike these when it is released in 2019.
The final products will work together with IKEA’s smart home appliances and will fully integrate with Sonos’ existing Wi-Fi speakers.
Business leader of IKEA Smart Home Björn Block said that the speakers will have an affordable price tag and the goal of these sound system is to save space, prevent clutter and bring sound into people’s homes in a beautiful way.
Check out the speakers below.
