IKEA and Sonos recognise the importance of light and sound, and its positive effect on life at home. Both are powerful mood boosters and deeply personal, with most people having their own preferences in terms of volume, brightness, type, and genre. Once again, the new SYMFONISK table lamp speaker combines the functionality of a smart lamp with a smart speaker but has been further developed with regards to both sound and design.
“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, making the lamp speaker a better fit for their individual homes”, says Stjepan Begic, product owner at IKEA of Sweden. “By integrating a speaker into a table lamp, we can save space, decrease clutter, and create atmosphere with both light and sound,” he adds.
Starting from October 2021, the new SYMFONISK table lamp speaker will be available in IKEA stores and on IKEA.com, in North America and selected markets in Europe before it reaches all IKEA markets next year.
