Sonos & Ikea partnership bears fruit – Meet Symfonisk

Sonos has collaborated with IKEA on SYMFONISK, a range of speakers designed to democratize the home sound system. Combining our expertise in sound and technology with IKEA’s knowledge of home furnishing, SYMFONISK seamlessly fits into the home to enhance everyday life and integrates with the Sonos system.

A table lamp and a bookshelf speaker that doubles as a shelf. That’s the two new products out of the Sonos & Ikea partnership due to launch in August.

Each of the two new speakers are fully compatible Sonos speakers including the recently added AirPlay2 support. Essentially variants of the Sonos One speaker the new Ikea models can also be used in a 5.1 surround setup with either the Sonos Beam or Playbar.

Aesthetically the speakers will match most modern homes and whilst the lamp doesn’t include a smart bulb, could be easily retrofitted.

The bookshelf speaker is the most versatile of the two in terms of placement. It can be hung in a kitchen on a utensil rack, laid perfectly into the squares of their popular Kallax bookshelf, hung as a shelf of its own or just plugged in and placed anywhere you desire.

Priced at €179 for the lamp and €99 for the bookshelf version there is no word on available in Australia at this point but look out for more information soon.
