Sound is a mood booster and brings people together, just like light. And both sound and light are outstanding when it comes to creating the right atmosphere. So, what happens when you combine these two forces in one product? To find out, we’ve cooperated with Sonos, specialists in wireless home sound systems.
“We wanted to see what everyday problems we could solve when we brought together our home furnishing knowledge with Sonos’ audio expertise,” says Stjepan Begic, Product Developer at IKEA.
Both light and sound are important elements to create a homey atmosphere. But the problem is that many of us have a lack of space, no matter if we live big or small. And in order to have good sound at home, you often have to use up some of this precious commodity. “So, why not create something that actually gives space back?” says Stjepan. Combining a speaker with an everyday object like a lamp is one way of doing it.
With SYMFONISK table lamp you can light up any corner of your home and at the same time play music through your WiFi system. “It’s one cord, but two functions,” says Stjepan. You can stream the same sound to several speakers – or choose different music for different rooms. SYMFONISK also works together with Sonos speakers and is easy to install, even for those of us that aren’t tech wizards. “Insert a light bulb, plug in the cord and download the Sonos app. Follow the instructions and you’re ready to create good vibes at home,” says Stjepan.
