Sonos & IKEA’s SYMFONISK speakers officially announced

Just weeks after the initial report and already IKEA and Sonos have unveiled their new speaker line. The SYMFONISK range starts off with two speakers, one that doubles as a table lamp, and another that doubles as a shelf.

SYMFONISK table lamp with Wi-Fi speaker

The table lamp combines light and sound into one product. Sonos says the speaker has a sound profile similar to Sonos One, and that two can be paired for stereo sound.  They can also be used as home theatre surrounds with the Sonos Beam, Playbar or Playbase. This will go for a recommended retail price of €179.

SYMFONISK book-shelf with Wi-Fi speaker

This speaker on the other hand, literally works as a shelf for books, and is able to support up to 3kg with the bracket. It can be attached to any kitchen rail via hooks, or placed in the home vertically or horizontally. This can also be paired for stereo sound, and will of course run as as home theatre surrounds with the Sonos Beam, Playbar or Playbase. The recommended retail price for this is €99.95.

For IKEA, the sound venture is part of a bigger journey into the smart home market that started with a wireless charging range in 2015. All these devices share IKEA’s design language, and so will fit seamlessly into any home.

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

The Sonos website states that the speakers will be available at IKEA from August 2019, but exactly which IKEA stores those are is unclear.
