IKEA has announced the launch of its latest product in collaboration with audio experts, Sonos. The new, cutting edge SYMFONISK table lamp speaker has an enhanced sound experience and features updated and customisable designs. The speaker is a refresh of the original SYMFONISK table lamp speaker, which launched in 2019.
Recognising the importance of light and sound and its positive effect on life at home, IKEA and Sonos looked to further develop the sound and design of the existing model. Combining IKEA’s home furnishing expertise with Sonos’ knowledge in creating great sound experiences, the new SYMFONISK table lamp speaker blends the functionality and convenience of a smart lamp with a smart speaker.
IKEA and Sonos designed the SYMFONISK table lamp speaker to allow for greater personalisation, with the product now divided into the SYMFONISK speaker lamp base and the SYMFONISK speaker lamp shade, which will be sold separately. Customers can choose between a black or white version of the lamp base, as well as a choice of four different lamp shades in either textile or glass, also in black or white, to mix and match for ultimate personalisation and to meet all style needs. The new lamp also supports a broader range of light bulbs thanks to the added E26/E27 socket.
“Since launching the first SYMFONISK table lamp speaker, we learned a lot about how and where they are being used. For example, a lot of people use the lamp speaker on a nightstand, which led us to create a new, slightly smaller lamp base. We’re now also offering customers more design choices to better suit their own individual tastes and styles. By integrating a speaker into a table lamp, we can save space, decrease clutter, and allow people to personalise the atmosphere within their home through both light and sound.”
Alistair Lowther, HFB Leader Core Area (Living)
The new SYMFONISK table lamp speaker features a completely new acoustic architecture that uses a custom waveguide, creating a great sound experience from any angle. The lamp speaker connects over WiFi and can be used as the only sound source in a room, or it can be connected with other Sonos products, including those from the SYMFONISK range. As with all SYMFONISK products, the speaker is also part of the Sonos system, easily connecting listeners to more than 100 streaming services.
SYMFONISK is a long-term collaboration between IKEA and Sonos that seeks to bring the worlds of home furnishing and sound closer together. Understanding the challenges of small space living, the SYMFONISK range offers versatile speakers that save space, look good, and deliver room-filling sound.
The new SYMFONISK table lamp speaker is available in IKEA stores across the UK and on IKEA.com. The lamp base and shades are sold separately.
